I had rather believe all the Fables in the Legend, and the Talmud, and the Alcoran, than that this universal frame is without a Mind. — Francis Bacon
I argue that the Talmud is about the constant struggle to understand. — Arthur Hertzberg
I have decided to follow in my sinful ways, and have largely abandoned the increasingly religious life I was leading over the previous months, including several hours of Talmudic study a day. — Luke Ford
In my tradition, one must wait until one has learned a lot of Bible and Talmud and the Prophets to handle mysticism. This isn't instant coffee. There is no instant mysticism. — Elie Wiesel
I wanted to write a commentary on the Bible, to write about the Talmud, about celebration, about the great eternal subjects: love and happiness. — Elie Wiesel
Every interpretation is but an introduction to another interpretation, and that is how Talmud pages are printed. — Zygmunt Bauman
I read the text; and then I come to the Shirat ha-Yam, to the Song of the Sea [Exodus 15], to the poetry. Who could have written such a poem except someone who went through it? It is so full of life, so full of truth, of passion, of concern. And the thousands and thousands of commentaries in the Talmudic tradition that have been written on it. It had to have happened. But even if not, I would attribute the same beauty to the text as I do now. — Elie Wiesel
In Jewish tradition the Talmud is said to have been given on Sinai. — Elie Wiesel
The Bible is interpreted by the Talmud.
Except, in Rabbinic tradition, a Talmudic law has the weight of the Biblical law. Sometimes we say in a prayer, "Blessed are Thou, O God, who has ordered us and commended us," to do something. But you don't find that "something" in the Bible; you find it in the Talmud. So Talmudic law becomes as important as Biblical law.
I would not speak of Judaism as a Talmudic or Rabbinic religion. It's a Biblical religion.
The Hebrew Bible defines Judaism. It's certainly true that the Talmudic interpretations become authoritative and normative, but they are interpretations of the Hebrew Bible. So that is always there.
Judaism is in a sense a Rabbinic, Talmudic religion, rather than a Biblical religion.
In my town we studied the five Books of Moses, but rarely the prophets.
We studied the Talmud so much that I sometimes knew the prophets because of the prophetic quotations in the Talmud. We almost never studied the prophets themselves.
In Talmudic literature, certainly in the beginning, he was like a human being - except he was a serpent. But he was talking and walking and probably dreaming.
I have a concordance to the Talmud at home, which I have to use.
Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986, Elie Wiesel is also the author of more than 40 books. As relevant as anything to today's discussion are the insights into the Biblical texts that are contained in his lectures and books. They include Messengers of God , Five Biblical Portraits  and his just-published Wise Men and Their Tales - Portraits of Biblical, Talmudic and Hasidic Masters.
I expect from our judges that their verdicts are also inspired by Talmudic law - and not only by common law or European justice systems.
Orthodox Jews, or, as they are known in the Talmud, the Really Chosen Ones, are committed to the idea that the entire Torah was dictated by God verbatim to Moses at Mount Sinai... Other forms of Judaism dispute this claim, although it does explain certain passages in the first Torah, such as, I'm sorry, am I boring you? and What do you like better, Moses, Lord Almighty or Big Hoohah?
