Midrash of the Ten Martyrs of Israel

Eleh Ezkera is a Midrash about Jewish heroism. It is the story of the Ten Martyrs of Israel who were brutally murdered by the Roman Empire in the period surrounding the destruction of the Second Temple and Jerusalem. A center piece of inspiration on Yom Kippur and Tisha B’Av, this Midrash is the story of what it means not only to die as a Jew but to live like one. In this fresh and modern translation by Rabbi David Sedley, with a foreword by Rabbi Yaacov Haber, the reader will discover a new definition of commitment to G-d and His people.
