Sefer Ha’aggadah represents an anthology of almost 8,000 midrashic and aggadic passages from rabbinic literature, carefully selected and organized according to a range of topics by poet Chaim Nachman Bialik and author Yehoshua Chana Ravnitzki,. Almost a century has passed since the book first appeared, and sixty years since the most recent edition. AVI CHAI is working now to produce with Kinneret Zmora Dvir Publishing House a new modern edition of Sefer Ha’aggadah within five years. The AVI CHAI version, edited by Professor Avigdor Shinan, will feature a new introduction, enhanced indices, and perhaps additional rabbinic texts discovered in the past sixty years. In addition, it will provide a completely new set of explanatory notes, intended for contemporary Israeli readers, clarifying difficult words, elucidating the original context of the aggadic passages, and updating the texts in light of the scholarly discoveries of the last century.
