    I was reminded of Kovner’s story about the volumes of the Talmud as “the central pillars” of Jewish self-defense by the very first sentence of Adin Steinsaltz’s introduction to his recently published reference guide to the study of the Talmud. 1 “Just as the Bible is the foundation of Judaism,” writes Steinsaltz, “the Talmud is the central pillar supporting the entire spiritual. Christians who claim a "Judeo-Christian" (which is an oxymoron) worldview need to understand that Judaism's Holiest Book is the Talmud, not the Old Testament.

Talmudism’s hermeneutic of concealment: The sacred texts Sifra, Mishnah, Gemara and Midrash are deceptive foils for rabbinic Judaism’s mission of seeking to pair extra-scriptural traditions with passages from the Bible; giving neutral words a Talmudic meaning, and fabricating derashot (doctrine presented in the form of homilies) that have no logical connection to Biblical verses.

    In Mishnaic and Talmudic times, there is no reference to battered women as a class. The Talmud does not overtly discuss wifebeating as a separate category of corporeal damage. There is one major allusion to wife beating in the Talmud which is couched in a discussion about the unlearned lower class, the am ha-are z (lit. “people of the land”). TALMUD. The term "Talmud" (Heb. talm û d, teaching, learning, from the verb l ā mad, to learn) designates the authoritative body of post-biblical Jewish laws and traditions, consisting essentially of two parts: an older nucleus, the mishnah, compiled toward the end of the 2d Christian century, and the commentaries on it, the gemarah, which has two forms — the Palestinian, compiled toward.

Rabbinic responsa constitute a special class of rabbinic literature, differing in form, but not necessarily in content, from Rabbinic commentaries devoted to the exegesis of the Bible, the Mishnah, the Talmud, and halakha (the codes of Jewish religious law).

The codes themselves contain the rules for ordinary incidents of life. Hebrew literature - Hebrew literature - Talmudic literature: In contrast to the works of the Bible and the Second Temple were the collections of writings concerned with Jewish civil and religious law.

Whereas the former were lengthy writings bearing the imprint of their authors or editors, early rabbinic literature consisted entirely of collections of individual statements loosely strung together.

Halakhot gedolot (“Great Laws”), by Simeon Kiyyara, followed years later. Rashi’s mishnaic commentary was printed with the Basel (the order Toharot–purities) and the Leghorn (all six orders) editions.

The Talmud (תלמוד) is considered an authoritative record of rabbinic discussions on Jewish law, Jewish ethics, customs, legends and is a fundamental source of legislation, customs, case histories and moral exhortations.
