iTalmud is the reason the iPhone was created” – A (very, very) happy user.

ABOUT THE TALMUD
The Talmud (or Gemara) is the supreme source-book of all Jewish Law and tradition. More than just a legal text, it is also a wellspring of ethical principles, and ultimately a guidebook to life.
Its rigorous study has inspired masses of people throughout the ages. In every historical period and geographical location, students of the Talmud have devoted hours upon hours, weeks upon weeks, years upon years, to the study of the its principles.
Given this rich history, the introduction of the iTalmud is a truly significant event. Never before has the entire Talmud been made available for portable use in it’s original form. Never have the classical commentaries of both Rashi and Tosafos been available on a portable, electronic device. Never before has the entirety of the Talmud been made accessible anytime, anywhere.
Until now.
