About this Book
The Maharal of Prague opened up what was for most scholars an inaccessible portion of the Talmud. With the works of the Maharal, a new light was revealed… Dr. Moshe Kuhr is a seeker of truth, and has dedicated his life to the study and teaching of the Maharal and many other of the great teachers of Israel. He has made a great contribution to helping ensure the richness of learning and the continuity of the Jewish People.
–Rabbi Yaacov Haber
For many readers, Nesivos Olam is simply a closed book. We all hear about it and admire it as a classic, but few of us ever open it up to actually study it… The translation is flowing and felicitous, and the additional commentary, albeit brief, is penetrating and thoughtful. We owe the Kuhrs a debt of gratitude for a true labor of love.
–Rabbi Yitzchak A. Breitowitz
Dr. Kuhr has translated and elucidated this work with grace, finesse, and reverence. All those who value true Torah scholarship will find Paths of the Maharal a treasure of Jewish wisdom and tradition, philosophy and worldview.
–Rabbi Berel Wein
