Jonathan Rosen blends religious history, memoir, and literary reflection as he compares the fortunate life of his American-born grandmother to the life of his European-born grandmother who was murdered by Nazis.

Talmud and the Internet book. The book opens with a computer crash that leads to the virtual loss of the author's grandmother (in the form of diaries kept about her final days).

In its global reach, its profusion of voices and perspectives and the gateways it opens into every conceivable subject, the Talmud has something of the texture of the internet. Even the phrase "home page" echoes something of what the Talmud meant for diaspora Jews: the virtual dwelling place of an uprooted people.

I was disappointed by The Talmud and the Internet for two reasons. As such, it was frequently redundant. Slight as it was, it could have been even more so.

What can connect the Talmud - the ancient book of the Jewish wisdom and the Internet - a product of modern high technologies? .

What can connect the Talmud - the ancient book of the Jewish wisdom and the Internet - a product of modern high technologies? The author finds surprising parallels in these boundless and at the same time always not completed worlds. The page of the Talmud and a homepage of the Internet in the paradoxical image are similar. Jonathan Rosen, the American prose writer and the essayist, reflects about the Talmud wisdom, destiny of the ancestors and interrelations of the outer and the spiritual worlds. Format: 9x11 Hardcover, 157pp.

In his 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 the 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.
