As a Driven Leaf Book Discussion with Rabbi Kalender

Join Rabbi Kalender to discuss one of his favorite books.

This dramatic novel is based on the life of Elisha ben Abuyah, a member of the Sanhedrin who, in the wake of tragedy, begins to doubt his faith. In this imagined biography, author Milton Steinberg examines the 2nd century struggle to reconcile Rabbinic Judaism with Greek Hellenistic society, speculates about questions and events that may have driven Elisha to apostasy, addresses questions of Jewish self-determination in the Roman Empire, and above all, explores the interdependence of reason and faith. Available for purchase in paperback and Kindle.
