Adin Steinsaltz receives Jerusalem medal

CONGRATULATIONS TO RABBI STEINSALTZ: Rabbi Adin Even-Israel (Steinsaltz) Honored With Jerusalem Award. Mayor pays a visit to the renowned rabbi, who continues to recover from a recent stroke ( The Jerusalem Post also has an article on the award: RECOVERING STEINSALTZ MADE 'YAKIR YERUSHALAYIM' DURING VISIT BY MAYOR.

Rabbi Steinsaltz has been mentioned often in PaleoJudaica, mostly regarding his Hebrew and English translations of the Talmud. For more on that, follow the links in the preceding paragraph
