Item Description:

The Jewish people reached its peak under the reign of King Solomon, but with every rise comes a fall. Called "the wisest of all men," King Solomon is a particularly complex figure in the Bible. Rabbi Wein attempts to reconcile the seemingly contradictory accounts of Solomon within Torah commentary, bringing us a very human but tragic picture.

• David and Solomon compared and contrasted
• King Solomon and "the heady wine" of success
• the Sages' debate over Solomon's errors
• Solomon's writings and their influence on Aristotle
• his marriage to the daughter of Pharoah - the beginning of the end
