The Talmud is a compilation of rabbinic discussions that comprise the foundation of Jewish law and tradition. The Talmuds are structured as expansions and commentary on the Mishnah, an early written compilation of the Oral Torah produced circa 200 CE. These Talmudic commentaries on Jewish morals, values, customs, history, and biblical interpretation had previously been passed down orally.

To preserve these oral traditions, the Talmuds were assembled in written form. Two different Talmuds were produced by Jewish scholars-The Jerusalem Talmud or Yerushalmi circa 400 C.E. and the Babylonian Talmud or Bavli circa 600 C.E. Logos is proud to offer the English translations of both the Babylonian Talmud and the Jerusalem Talmud, edited by the celebrated scholar of Judaism, Jacob Neusner.
