Gemara: Talmud Bavli for the BlackBerry

Tweet about this on Twitter0Share on Facebook0Share on LinkedIn0Pin on Pinterest0

The Talmud is the basic compendium of Jewish law and thought.  Its tractates mainly comprise the discussions collectively known as the Gemara, which elucidate the germinal statements of law (mishnayot) collectively known as the Mishnah.

Talmud Bavli is the edition developed in Babylonia, and edited at the end of the fifth century C.E.

The Talmud is the repository of thousands of years of Jewish wisdom.  And the Oral Law, which is as ancient and significant as the Written Law (Torah), finds expression therein.

It is a conglomerate of law, legend, and philosophy, a blend of unique logic and shrewd pragmatism, of history and science, anecdote and humor.
