Reviews - What do customers think about Dictionary of the Targumim, Talmud Bavli, Talmud Yerushalmi and Midrashic Literature?

comprehensive  Aug 28, 2008
This is one of the best and most comprehensive Aramaic dictionaries that I've come across. In it one can find not only more word definitions than in any other dictionary, but -- for the astute or otherwise interested reader -- also the words' roots. Nice work.

To accommodate English speakers, the alphabetical listings run from left to right. It's a little confusing at first because Hebrew and Aramaic are written right to left, but once you get used to it, this remains the best and most comprehensive Aramaic dictionary that I know of.
Best Dictionary for Reading Rabbinic Scripts  Jan 11, 2007
This Dictionary has a great advantage in fact that is compact and gives not only translations of the Aramaic expressions, but it gives also examples from real rabbinic scripts as Talmud, Midrashes and specially from Targums which form an important testimony on how the ancient rabbis understood the biblical texts.
THE Dictionary for Rabbinics  Dec 24, 2006
"Jastrow," as this book is affectionately known, is the constant companion of every English-speaking student of rabbinic literature. It is a marvelous work, no doubt about it.

Even so, it has its limitations. Its arrangement is somewhat quirky, and the typefaces in which it is set are less than optimal. Readers with less than perfect vision may want a magnifying glass to go with it.

For the serious student, there is no substitute for Jastrow.
Essential for learning Talmud  Apr 18, 2006
Unless you are fluent in hebrew and aramaic this book is essential for any serious student of Talmud. It is the only book by a non Orthodox Jewish scholar used in every English speaking yeshiva in the world. Whether you are a beginner or a Torah scholar (which means you already own Jastrow) this is an essential part of any Jewish library.
