Excerpt from The Talmud of Jerusalem, Translated for the First Time, Vol. 1: Berakhoth
The Talmud has very often been spoken of, but is little known. The very great linguistic difficulties, and the vast size of the work, have up to the present time prevented the effecting of more than the translation of the Mishna only into Latin and, later, in German. At the instance of some friends, we have, decided upon publishing a complete textual and generally literal version of the Talmud, that historical and religious work which forms a continuation of the Old and even of.the New Testament.1 We are far from laying claim to a perfect translation of all the delicate shades of expression belonging to an idiom so strange and variable, which is a mixture of neo-hebrew and Chaldean, and concise almost to obscurity. We wish to take every opportunity of improving this work.
