The Other Talmud--The Yerushalmi

Unlocking the Secrets of the Talmud of Israel for Judaism Today
  • By Rabbi Judith Z., PhD Abrams
$17.99
($24.99)

A fascinating--and stimulating--look at "the other Talmud" and the possibilities for Jewish life reflected there.

"The difference between the Bavli and the Yerushalmi is something like the difference between making a movie for a regular theater versus making one for a 3-D theater and/or an IMAX theater. It's still the story of Judaism and the Jewish people. But the colors are richer, the action is bigger, the effects are more powerful in the 3-D/IMAX world of the Yerushalmi. Your actors ... live on the soundstage, that is, in Israel, and that informs their performance.... You could imagine the Yerushalmi is a pop-up book: you open it and Jewish living materializes."
--from the Introduction

This engaging look at the Judaism that might have been breaks open the Yerushalmi--"The Talmud of the Land of Israel"--and what it means for Jewish life today. It examines what the Yerushalmi is, how it differs from the Bavli--the Babylonian Talmud--and how and why the Bavli is used today. It reveals how the Yerushalmi's vision of Jewish practice resembles today's liberal Judaism, and why the is growing in popularity.

This broad but accessible overview of all the essential aspects of "The Talmud of the Land of Israel" will help you deepen your understanding of Judaism and the history of the Jewish people.
