The Talmud
The Internet
A Journey Between Worlds

by Jonathan Rosen

Publisher: Continuum – London and New York
132 pp Price: £10.99

In his extraordinary personal meditation on the relationship between the ancient, continuing tradition of the Talmud and the expanding world of the internet, Jonathan Rosen blends memoir, history and literary reflection. In the loose, associative logic and vastness of each, he discovers not merely the disruption of a broken world but a kind of disjointed harmony. In the same way that the Talmud helped Jews survive after the destruction of the Temple by making Jewish culture portable and personal, the all-inclusive Internet serves a world that is both more uprooted and more connected than before.

Searchingly, and with hope, Rosen explores the territory between doubt and belief, the past and the present, the present and the future.
