The Talmudic sage Rabbi Eliezer ben Horkenus began as an ignorant farmhand, but driven by a passionate desire to learn Torah, he set out for Yerushalayim and joined the great Yeshivos there. In time, he rose to greatness himself, ultimately becoming a leading disciple of Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakai and earning the title "Rabbi Eliezer Hagadol" ("the Great"), thereby demonstrating the incredible growth that one can achieve if one only has the will.
Pirkei D'Rebbi Eliezer, authored by Rabbi Eliezer Hagadol, is a kaleidoscopic collection of captivating rabbinic insights on many episodes in the Torah and Tanach that reveal their tremendous ethical value and their relevance in daily life. Rabbi Eliezer also describes fascinating visions of the future and shares mystical revelations concerning the afterlife, the World to Come, Gan Eden, Gehinnom, the revival of the dead and the spiritual realm of the angels.
This work of profound wisdom, previously published in two volumes and now available in this combined single-volume edition, will open your eyes to the beauty of the Torah and inspire you to reach ever higher in your service of Hashem.
