Detailed Description  

Only edition of these discourses by R. Menahem Mendel Bodek. Enot Mayim is comprised of discourses on the words of hazal (early rabbinic sages) on midrashim and aggadot, and parables and phrases, how they are employed  with their middot and musar. On the verso of the title-page is an approbation from R. Joseph Saul Nathansohn, R. Bodek’s rebbe. Next is R. Bodek’s introduction, which he concludes by thanking R. Nathansohn and others for their help and kindness. An interesting and insightful book on the saying of early rabbinic sages.

As noted above, R. Menahem Mendel Bodek was a student of R. Joseph Saul Nathansohn, the latter helping his students to establish publishing houses that specialized in rabbinical literature, among them, as well as R. Bodek, R. Yosef Kohen-Tsedek, R. Uri Ze’ev Salat, and R. Yisra’el Elimelek
