A Shavuot gift (well sort of, since if you want it you have to buy it)


Steinsaltz Talmud available in English


(JTA) -- A Talmud that took Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz 45 years to translate from ancient Hebrew and Aramaic into modern Hebrew is being published in English.


The first volume of Steinsaltz’s Koren Talmud Bavli is being launched in conjunction with Shavuot, which commemorates the day the Torah was given to the Jewish people. The complete set will comprise 41 volumes.


The Koren Talmud Bavli includes a translation and commentary by Steinsaltz, as well as illustrations and color photographs.


An iPad app will be available in July, according to Koren Publishers Jerusalem.


“The Talmud expresses the deepest Jewish spirit,” Steinsaltz said in a news release. “My hope is that the Koren Talmud Bavli will render the Talmud accessible to millions of Jews, allowing them to study it, approach it, and perhaps even become one with it.”


Steinsaltz, who has written some 60 books, also has established a network of schools in Israel and the former Soviet Union. In 1988, Steinsaltz won the Israel Prize, the country’s highest honor, for his work in Jewish education.

I have this really nice shavuot 2012 picture (I like it anyway) which I have been trying to post but I can't seem to do it. I know other people have successfully posted pictures. Does anyone know how?

The only way that works for me, is to load the picture to you bnet profile, then copy the image location with your right click on mouse. Then on your post where the little tree image is page in the place that says image URL.


That usually works for  me.  :)

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle

I started buying Steinsalz's Talmud volumes in English as they started coming out, around 25-30 years ago - kept it up  until we started having babies and needed diapers more than another $60 book! I have about the first 14 or 15 volumes, still.



Blessed are You, HaShem, Who blesses the years.
