Product Description

This is a new edition of the Jerusalem Talmud with an index that meets the needs of the most rigorous researcher and allows the layman to become almost as knowledgeable.

The new one-volume edition of the ancient sacred text includes seven new indices, including a subject index of some 27,000 entries covering topics such as labor laws, insurance, prison, abortion, kidnapping and righteous gentiles. Another index covers some 6,000 Biblical verses.

The new volume's introduction explains, 'The Jerusalem Talmud is the Land-of-Israel version of the six orders of the Mishnah - the distillation of all that the Land of Israel sages reflected upon and taught in the approximately 200 years after the codification of the Mishnah.'

A team of Talmudic scholars examined the entire Jerusalem Talmud for seven years in order to create the comprehensive indexes.

The Talmud is comprised of the Oral Law, known as the Mishnah, and a collection of discussions and rabbinic interpretations of the Law, known as the Gemara. The Mishna and Gemara together complete the Talmud - of which there are two.

The Jerusalem Talmud, written in both Hebrew and Aramaic, predates by some 200 years the Babylonian Talmud, which the Sages wrote after the Jewish exile from the Land of Israel.

'As is well-known,' the introduction states, 'the Jerusalem Talmud was outshadowed over the course of many generations by the Babylonian Talmud, and was not even available to many of the early Sages - yet redemption has finally been achieved for the Jerusalem Talmud with the publication of a modern and precise edition of the entire work.'
