Advance Praise

"Torah and Company is wonderfully conceived and wisely executed.  It will enrich you and your family's Shabbat table with wisdom that will carry over throughout your week." — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish Ethics.

"Addicting! Thought provoking. I'm inspired to continue learning." —Fern Weis, middle school teacher

"Rabbi Judith Abrams Torah and Company is a wonderful spur to hours of wonderful conversation and study among family and friends.  Urging the reader though central lessons of the weekly Torah readings, Abrams selects wise and appropriate rabbinic teachings to take the discussion to even deeper levels of inquiry, and her leading questions are thought-provoking and instructive.  There is not another book like it, and I have no doubt that readers--in the company of their families and friends--will be grateful for having had the opportunity to learn from such a masterful teacher." Professor David Kraemer Joseph J. and Dora Abbell Librarian, Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics, Jewish Theological Seminary

"Torah & Company revives the medieval Jewish custom of pairing the weekly Torah readings with selections of Mishnah, and then goes it one better by adding Talmud and other Jewish texts. The result yields meaningful weekly study of Torah and rabbinic literature. Rabbi Abrams offers readers easy access and guided questions which lead to thought provoking discussion. A valuable guide for the Shabbat table of every Jew." —Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Appleman Professor of Midrash and Interreligious Studies, Jewish Theological Seminary

Reb Judy connects the key issues of our lives and times, and teachings of the sages in a way that reveals the power and relevance of each weekly Torah portion.  A Shabbat treasure for every home. —Rabbi Goldie Milgram, author, Meaning and Mitzvah: Daily Practices for Reclaiming Judaism through God, Prayer, Torah, Hebrew, Mitzvot and Peoplehood
