I saw that the Catholic Library got an update and is now called "Verbum" with different base packages. I really would like to see a library with jewish resources bundled which could be called "Memra" and have a nice Logo, too Smile It could include all the JPS Tanakh commentaries, the Talmud (Neusner and Rodkinson), Mishnah, Midrash Collection, Targum Collection, Legends of the Jews, the Jewish Law bundle, Maimonides, commentaries of ibn Ezra etc. By the way, we still don't have an English translation of the Targumim, do we?

Yes Though I'd assume the price might be a little hefty?

Regarding a targum translation, I think they have the oldies on a CP but it's not going anywhere.  One big reason I'll be 'supplementing' my Logos with Accordance next year (Windows).

If you love everything Aramaic, why do you want a translation?  Just read the Aramaic.  Wink  Big Smile

Yes, please. I've requested this numerous times, though I thought about Davar -- except I believe that name is already taken.

Though the largest Catholic package is surprisingly good as a stand-in for a Jewish package. Lots of high quality Jewish and original language resources. I haven't done any calculations, but right now it's probably the cheapest way for a scholarly Jew with Greek as well as Hebrew to start a good Jewish Logos library. No Talmud or HALOT, however.

Tosefta, Midrash Rabbah, Rashi, Nachmanides...
