Do you know who it was Marcus Jastrow? I’m sure the answer is: yes, of course. He was a renowned Talmudic scholar, most famously known for his authorship of the popular and comprehensive A Dictionary of the Targumim, Talmud Babli, Talmud Yerushalmi and Midrashic Literature.

Jastrow Dictionary of the Talmud 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 this is an essential part of any Jewish library.
