Description: The Talmud: The Steinsaltz Edition makes Judaism's great compendium of tradition, law, and legend accessible in modern English for the first time.

Accepted as the authoritative basis for all subsequent codification of Jewish law and practice, the multivolume Babylonian Talmud has been studied constantly by Jewish communities throughout the world since its completion in the sixth century. Yet, for most people, the complexity of the Talmud's Hebrew and Aramaic texts is an impenetrable barrier to its riches. Furthermore, the Talmud's unique system of logic and argumentation often baffles even experienced readers.

The Talmud: The Steinsaltz Edition makes it possible at last for everyone to read the Talmud, because it's more than just a translation. Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz becomes your personal instructor, guiding you through the intricate paths of Talmudic logic and thought. His extensive introductions and commentaries clarify the text by providing all the background information needed to follow it, while his illustrated marginal notes supply fascinating insight into daily life in Talmudic times.

Tractate Sanhedrin, Part VII, concludes the Tractate Sanhedrin and Random House's edition of the Steinsaltz Talmud. False prophecy and the sacrifice of Isaac are discussed, as well as how Halakhic disputes arose between the schools of Hillel and Shammai. Matters of faith, morality, and a person's mission in life are also debated and discussed at length, as well as hopes and preparations for the coming of the Messiah and the End of Days, when the world will return to perfection.
