Overview

A Dictionary of the Targumim, the Talmud Babli: And Yerushalmi, and the Midrashic Literature

A classic and still standard resource, Marcus Jastrow's monumental dictionary remains unique in that it covers both the Hebrew and Aramaic languages in the literature of the rabbinic period. This indispensable dictionary of targumic and rabbinic literature includes thousands of entries in fully vocalized Hebrew and Aramaic, with references to the original texts, clear English definitions, and the full range of meanings and usages in the sources. It is organized alphabetically by actual form but includes also reference to a word's root, with abundant cross-references. Complete in one volume, in original largeprint format, sturdy binding, and with an index of Scriptural quotations, it is the most comprehensive single-volume dictionary available for reading early Jewish texts.
