Rabbi Jonathan Blass

29 Elul 5763
Question
Have just read "From Time Immemorial" by Joan Peters and was astounded and impressed by the research and facts. However, my Rabbi tells my this book is a fraud and therefore must never be considered factual...he says leading writers in Jerusalem agree it is a "fraud". What do I believe (I cannot check ALL of her research...as he claims to have been done)
Answer
An interchange of letters between two defenders of the book's thesis (one is Daniel Pipes, recently in the news) and one of its critics (Yehoshua Porath) can be found at www.nybooks.com/articles/5172
