Legacy of Sinai is yet another exciting addition to the widely acclaimed Hashkafah Library Series. Written by the well-known author and Torah educator, Rabbi Zechariah Fendel, Legacy of Sinai adheres to the standard of excellence established by its forerunners in this series, Anvil of Sinai and Challenge of Sinai. Legacy of Sinai weaves a fascinating tale of the first 4,800 years of Jewish spiritual development, with its magnificent, dramatic overtones, which will capture the interest and imagination of scholar and layman alike. In his easily readable, captivating style, the author leads the reader through the paths and byways of the history of Torah transmission, from Creation through the end of the Geonic era [1-4,798]. The lucidity and clarity of the text make Legacy of Sinai eminently suitable even for the reader with little background in Jewish history, while the profusion of over 1,500 footnotes, containing a multitude of source references drawn upon authentic Torah sources, make this work of great value and interest for scholars, as well. Moreover, the 33 original Charts and Tables, as well as the extensive Bibliography and Indices, make Legacy of Sinai an entirely indispensable work for every sincere student of Jewish history. The cover photo symbolizes the kesser Torah, the crown of Torah, as it was transmitted to the Torah leaders of each generation. For clarification of the important eras of Torah transmission represented by the dates in the cover photo, see Table XXX, on p. 262.
