ABOUT THIS BOOK
With the publication of Yerushalmi Pesahim the University of Chicago Press completes a landmark edition of the Palestinian Talmud, The Talmud of the Land of Israel: A Preliminary Translation and Explanation. Edited by the acclaimed scholar Jacob Neusner, this thirty-five volume English translation of the Talmud Yerushalmi has been hailed by the Jewish Spectator as a "project...of immense benefit to students of rabbinic Judaism."
Yerushalmi Pesahim details the specific requirements regarding the preparation for Passover, the Passover sacrifice, and the Seder. Commenting on the many, often contradictory, prescriptions in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, this tractate is an important part of a long tradition of interpretation regarding Passover.
