This volume looks at Avodah Zarah, a tractate of the Talmud concerning idolatry, page by page. Daily Reflections on Idolatry offers a modern commentary with doses of humor and comparative examples in an effort to both explain and humanize the text and make it even more accessible to contemporary readers.
