Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz provides wise and uplifting answers to the most important questions facing Jews everywhere, whether they are secular and assimilated or orthodox - Are we a nation or a religion? Are the stereotypes of Jews really true? How can we navigate the opposing forces of diversity, culture and politics?

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz is the editor and translator of Random House's twenty-two-volume edition of the Talmud. He is also the author of many volumes on Jewish thought and practice and has been a resident scholar at both Yale University and the Institute for Advanced Study. In 1988 he was invited to open a Judaic studies center in Moscow, the first such institution in the former Soviet Union in sixty years. Rabbi Steinsaltz lives in Israel.
