When an artist is called back for encore after encore, he has a right to feel complimented.

Rabbi Paysach J. Krohn’s The Maggid Speaks is still one of the most popular books in the English-language Judaica explosion of recent years. In response to popular demand, he wrote Around the Maggid’s Table. The demand continues -- so here is yet another sparkling collection of stories and parables from the pen of a master and the annals of Jewish life.

This book brings us wisdom, humor, love, and idealism. It introduces us to many great sages and heroes of the spirit. Rabbi Krohn presents them with the same zest that he brings to his popular lecture appearances. Not only zest, but also sensitivity because it takes a warm and wise human being to tell those stories with such elegance and to draw from them the lessons that can enrich countless thousands of individual and family lives.

Perceptive people have noted that from the teachings and rulings of our sages we learn what the Torah commands. But from their personal behavior and concern for others we learn what the Torah makes of people.When we meet the great people in this book, the famous ones like the Bais Helevi and Rabbi Yaakov Kaminetzky, and the almost anonymous ones like the mother who sat on the steps of an overcrowded yeshiva for days until it managed to find a place for her son -- we marvel, smile, and cry. We are elevated.

And when we read this book, we enjoy the sheer pleasure of good reading.
