"Calderon's retelling of tales of the Talmud will be healing for those who have felt pushed to the Talmud's margins and exciting for those who have loved the Talmud's gift for a good story." - Rabbi Jill Hammer, author of Sisters at Sinai and The Jewish Book of Days "A Bride for One Night is a treasure and made me eager to study more Talmud." - Edgar M. Bronfman, president of the Samuel Bronfman Foundation
