Martin Samuel Cohen, author of The Boy on the Door on the Ox, spent the past week guest blogging on Jewcy.  Much like his book, Cohen took us on a journey through the Mishnah, beginning with some words on the text’s true significance, followed by advice on how to put all those college reading assignments to good use.  Then he talked about what makes "great" literature great, gave us the inside story on Aviv Press, and parted with a gracious farewell.
