One Response to “Literature of the Sages v. 2”

  1. 1
    Menachem Mendel:

    Why are there so many articles by Ze’ev Safrai? Also, is MB Lerner the one who thinks there was a Babylonian Esther midrash compilation? Does he still think that?

    Oh – because he and his son edited it.
    Lia | 05.31.07 – 11:30 am | #

    Same one and I don’t know what he thinks about a Babylonian Esther midrash.
