Jewish Values: Angels Sweep the Desert Floor: Bible Legends About Moses in the Wilderness
Place of Publication:
Number of Pages:
These eighteen inventive stories are set during the Israelites' sojourn in the wilderness. Moses, Aaron, and Miriam are the main human characters but the focus is on angels, who ease the hardships of the desert and give Moses spiritual sustenance. The stories are based on biblical and midrashic sources and are imaginatively embellished by the author, who scrupulously cites sources.
