Item description for The Jerusalem Talmud: A Translation and Commentary on CD-ROM by Jacob Neusner...
Overview commentary on the oral law (the Mishnah) of Israel that ties that oral law to the written law (the Torah, the Hebrew Scripture). Completed about 200 years prior to The Babylonian Talmud (Bavli), it records the first such compilation of Jewish scholarly thought. Jacob Neusner completed this monumental American translation and commentary of The Jerusalem Talmud in the last decade, but until now it has been expensive and difficult to obtain. Now all thirty-nine Yerushalmi tractates as translated by Professor Neusner have been brought together in this CD-ROM. In addition to a preface and general introduction to the whole work, Professor Neusner has provided fresh and helpful introductions to each of the tractates. He has also provided within his translation the references to Bible verses alluded to in the Yerushalmi. This electronic edition contains the full content of the translation, commentary on most of the tractates, and introductions to each. Enabling instantaneous searches by word or phrase, it has exceptional research capabilities-and opens swift avenues for exploration and discovery.
