Last December, I signed up for a puzzle experience called the Black Letter Game, run pseudonymously by "Roman Debellatio". It promised to be an artifact-based puzzle hunt, and sounded interesting, so I decided to take a chance and pay $52 for a subscription. Can I call this a write-up if I never finished? )

As we approach the beginning of the thirteenth cycle of the Daf Yomi, the "page-a-day" study program that covers the entire Babylonian Talmud in seven-and-a-half years, a bunch of new resources are becoming available. A few months ago, I breathlessly praised Koren Publications' new translation of Rabbi Steinsaltz's explication of the Talmud.

Today, I have the pleasure to review "Relics for the Present: Contemporary Reflections on the Talmud" by Rabbi Levi Cooper, which is published by Koren's Maggid imprint in conjunction with the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies. (Obligatory disclaimer: Koren sent me a review copy of this book.)
