What happens when a woman remarries after a spouse's supposed death, only to discover that the reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated? The textual, ethical and literary challenges elicited profound responses from centuries of interpreters, including Shai Agnon, the modernist writer who wove a novella from this material.

Ethical Wills: A Values Vault for Future Generations©

Ethical wills, sometimes called spiritual or legacy letters, are resources Jews have used for centuries to articulate and pass on deeply held values and beliefs. Historically, they were letters written by parents to children; now they often address a wider circle of friends and family, and can come in audio, video, or other creative formats.
