The original text of the Jerusalem Talmud is here established on the basis of the editio princeps and the existing manuscripts. The text is fully vocalized. This edition also presents the first English scholarly translation and commentary of the Jerusalem Talmud. All technical terms and syllogisms are explained. The edition will serve as a necessary foundation for the understanding of all rabbinic tradition once the entire Talmud has been commented.
