Interview with Adin Steinsaltz from 1969
Over Shabbat lunch a friend and I talked a bit about Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz. One of the topics that we talked about what the evolution of his edition of the Talmud. How did he go about working on it? Who helped him with it? See this previous post on the question. In the interview below he does mention how he came up with a number of options for the new layout and the Lubavitcher Rebbe pushed him to choose the one that he chose in the end.
Besides this information, I wasn’t able to find out much more. I decided to do some searching around the great web site, Historical Jewish Press, to see what I could find. I did find a few interesting tidbits about his edition of the Talmud, but if anyone has any more concrete information I would be very appreciative. A nice find was the following interview with him from Devar ha-Shavua, no. 37, from September 12, 1969. I tried to make it as legible as possible.
