Announcement from the Talmud Yerushalmi Institute

We are excited to introduce the Talmud Yerushalmi Institute ( The Institute’s primary academic goal is to research the Talmud Yerushalmi’s redaction – including but not limited to its literary composition and its relationship to other rabbinic texts such as Tosefta, midrashic collections and the Bavli. Towards these goals the Institute has already scoured the Talmud Yerushalmi and accumulated a database able to automatically produce references on phenomena related to its study – a resource which will prove to be essential to anyone researching the Talmud Yerushalmi or related subjects.

  1. K'vod HaRav,

    Could you explain why you are being "mishtatef" with conservative scholars for this project.

  2. If you read the description of his role carefully, you will see that he has no input as to content.

  3. But is his presence going to enhance the credibility of the project amongst those to whom it may be shayach or will his input in whatever capacity be the cause to disregard the project? It doesn't take much for a kanoy to make fun and fallout could be messy.

  4. I hear. I will look into the issue further. I am not the ba'alim of the project. I will speak to the ba'alim and determine if it is necessary for me to disassociate myself.
