Midrash Kohelet Rabbah was edited in Eretz Yisrael in the 6th or 7th century. It reflects the struggle of the Sages to understand one of the most challenging books of the Bible. It contains a wealth of Rabbinic thought about life and death, joy and sorrow. This is the first critical edition of this Midrash, which includes variant readings, an introduction and a commentary, along with the text of Kohelet Zuta.
