Rabbi Jeffrey Saks discusses "The Rarest Blue: The Remarkable Story of an Ancient Color Lost to History and Rediscovered", Baruch Sterman's new book about the revival of tekhelet - Biblical blue (visit www.TheRarestBlue.com and www.tekhelet.com). The book is a riveting adventure tale, in which halakhah (Jewish law) and its interface with nearly every field of human science, wisdom and endeavour, serves as the main "hero" covering 1,300 years of Jewish history.

Rabbi Jeffrey Saks talks with Dr. Elie Holzer about his new book "A Philosophy of Havruta: Understanding and Teaching the Art of Text Study in Pairs" (Academic Studies Press). What are the implications for moral education in using havruta paired learning in Jewish studies? Is it merely a technique or are there larger affective goals at work?
