Description
 
Translation of the Midrash of the Asara Harugei Malchus, the Ten Martyrs of Israel by Rabbi David Sedley about the historical context of the martyrs, and the concept of the righteous dying on behalf of the nation.

Eileh Ezkarah is a Midrash about Jewish heroism. It is the story of the Ten Martyrs of Israel that were brutally murdered by the Roman Empire in the period surrounding the destruction of the Second Temple and Jerusalem. A centerpiece of inspiration and reflection on Yom Kippur and Tisha B'Av, this Midrash is the personal story of what it means not only to die as a Jew but to live as one. In this fresh, modern translation, the reader will discover a new definition of commitment to G-d and His people.
With a foreword by Rabbi Yaacov Haber about true Jewish heroism.
