The process of midrash-making began with the redaction of the Bible, a centuries-long process that began around BCE and ended in the early years of the Common Era. It can even be argued that the Bible itself is midrash: The latter books of Chronicles explain and interpret parts of the narrative presented in earlier books of Kings. By Rabbi Dr. Azriel Rosenfeld “Midrash” is a summary of the non-Halachic material in the Talmud, based on the classical compilation “EIN YA’AKOV” The Torah not only contains legal principles (“Halachah”), but also teaches many other things from which we can derive important moral and philosophical lessons; this non-legal aspect of the Torah is called “Aggadah.” The “Written.
Midrash and Multiplicity addresses the problems raised by this equivocal work, and uses Pirke de-Rabbi Eliezer in order to assess the nature of midrash, and the renewal of Jewish interpretive culture, during its transition to the medieval era. This book introduces Midrash both in general and through many examples of the kinds of Midrash. Indeed, while midrashic conceptions have been (rightly or wrongly) associated with a postmodern indeterminacy and an aesthetic realm which has--in Western terms--accommodated multiplicity, halakhic discourses pre-suppose such a polysemy or pluralism (the lexicons of Western legal thought will fail us here) in the realm of Law. This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to make the world’s books discoverable online. It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject. The Hebrew word midrash is derived from the root of the verb darash (דָּרַשׁ ), which means "resort to, seek, seek with care, enquire, require", forms of which appear frequently in the Bible.. The word midrash occurs twice in the Hebrew Bible: 2 Chronicles "in the midrash of the prophet Iddo", and "in the midrash of the book of the kings".
