While the editors of Jerusalem Talmud and Babylonian Talmud each mention the other community, most scholars believe these documents were written independently; Louis Jacobs writes, "If the editors of either had had access to an actual text of the other, it is inconceivable that they would not have mentioned this.
Here the argument from silence is very convincing. It is written largely in Jewish Palestinian Aramaic , a Western Aramaic language that differs from its Babylonian counterpart.
Because of their location, the sages of these Academies devoted considerable attention to analysis of the agricultural laws of the Land of Israel. It is traditionally known as the Talmud Yerushalmi "Jerusalem Talmud" , but the name is a misnomer, as it was not prepared in Jerusalem.
It has more accurately been called "The Talmud of the Land of Israel". By this time Christianity had become the state religion of the Roman Empire and Jerusalem the holy city of Christendom. In Constantine the Great , the first Christian emperor, said "let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd.
The compilers of the Jerusalem Talmud consequently lacked the time to produce a work of the quality they had intended.
The text is evidently incomplete and is not easy to follow. The apparent cessation of work on the Jerusalem Talmud in the 5th century has been associated with the decision of Theodosius II in to suppress the Patriarchate and put an end to the practice of semikhah , formal scholarly ordination.
Some modern scholars have questioned this connection. Despite its incomplete state, the Jerusalem Talmud remains an indispensable source of knowledge of the development of the Jewish Law in the Holy Land. It was also an important resource in the study of the Babylonian Talmud by the Kairouan school of Chananel ben Chushiel and Nissim ben Jacob , with the result that opinions ultimately based on the Jerusalem Talmud found their way into both the Tosafot and the Mishneh Torah of Maimonides.
Following the formation of the modern state of Israel there is some interest in restoring Eretz Yisrael traditions. For example, rabbi David Bar-Hayim of the Makhon Shilo institute has issued a siddur reflecting Eretz Yisrael practice as found in the Jerusalem Talmud and other sources.
Babylonian Talmud[ edit ] A full set of the Babylonian Talmud The Babylonian Talmud Talmud Bavli consists of documents compiled over the period of late antiquity 3rd to 6th centuries. The work begun by Rav Ashi was completed by Ravina, who is traditionally regarded as the final Amoraic expounder.
The distances which actual or potential nuisances have to be kept away from the border line are specified, and incidentally the limits of free competition [page xii] between persons following the same occupation are discussed. HAPTER III is concerned chiefly with the subject of hazakah or usucaption—the conditions under which right of ownership is acquired by the mere fact of occupation, without title-deed or other proof. The regulations for hazakah are discussed with great dialectical acumen and some wealth of illustration, in regard to various forms of landed property, to other fixed property, and to animate and inanimate objects.
HAPTER IV deals with the proper methods of interpreting contracts of sale relating to land and other fixed property, to determine what objects can be regarded as being included without being expressly specified. The same question is also discussed in connection with deeds of gift and consecration. Legal forms of acquisition of property, valuables, debts and commodities are dealt with, and the parts and appurtenances that are included in the sale of objects such as a ship and a waggon, property such as a water cistern, a dove-cote, a bee-hive or a tree, and animals such as a yoke of oxen or an ass are legally determined.
Conditions under which a sale may be cancelled, as determined by price, quality and quantity, and regulations on weights and measures are laid down. HAPTER VII determines the nature and extent of rocks and clefts that may be included by a seller in the measurements of a field, and the conditions which entitle a buyer to insist on exact measurements.
Laws are laid down in cases of disagreement between assessors, and the law of the overcharge of a sixth of the value is formulated. The laws of hereditary succession and the degrees of consanguinity as between descendants, ancestors and other blood relations as well as mutual rights of husband and wife are dealt with.
It also deals with conflicting claims of relatives in cases of uncertainty as to whether lather or son, husband or wife, mother or son died first. HAPTER X describes the folded and plain deed, and defines the laws relating to the forms, dates and witnesses in connection with legal documents, such as letters of divorce. Antedated and postdated deeds, ambiguous entries of amounts, effaced writing, exchange of bonds to a higher or lower denomination, writing a deed in the absence of one of the parties, verbal and written loans, are among the other subjects discussed and determined.

It treats of the formation of the Biblical canon and the authorship and date of its component parts, describes the contents of the Holy Ark, and discusses the character of Job and the Patriarchs Ch.
It records the establishment of an elementary school system in Israel, and makes various recommendations for teachers. It relates the tragic end of R. Adda b. Abba and discusses the location of the Shechinah Ch. Sayings are recorded and anecdotes are told of the shrewd and pious R. The famous Bar Bar Hana stories and hyperboles are recorded, and Leviathan, behemoth, new Jerusalem and a number of characters in the Book of Ruth are discussed Ch.
The other five Chapters, with the exception of Chapter IX which contains some information on the weather and its influence on the crops, are practically devoid of all aggadic matter.
For, beyond a paraphrase of some of its simpler portions, he had to fall back upon his own knowledge of Hebrew and other languages in navigating the uncharted sea. The present translators, like all students of the Tractate, have had to depend mainly on the work of the great medieval commentators, Rashbam R.
