About The Author

Rabbi Elihu Abbe had the zechus to learn full time for thirteen years, first as a talmid of Yeshivat Kerem B’Yavneh and then at RIETS (Yeshiva University), where he received semichah.

He also enjoyed six summers working as a counselor at Morasha Kollel, organizing, caring for the talmidim, and offering guidance.

  1. Rabbi Daniel Friedman

    Rabbi Abbe takes ideas from the Gemara in Brachos and applies them to daily life, along the lines of The Transformative Daf. I look forward to reading more in the Psychology in the Talmud series!

  2. J D

    Rabbi Abbe has written a brilliant book that shows how contemporary psychological takes were long ago to be found in our Torah. The format of one daf per chapter makes for quick, impactful reading. This is a great book for the Shabbos table of to discuss with kids or your partner during downtime or a car ride. I hope there will be a sequel!

  3. SEEKERofKNOWLEDGE

    Well written, great graphics, excellent addition to Torah library. Enjoy the learning.
