Actually last year, but solidifying. And interesting tools. If you get bored in the early article, it gets better on the nuts and bolts down further.

It does illustrate what I, at least, now take for granted in Logos ... text accessibility and significant tools.  Needing the Talmud in Aramaic was interesting, though.

 Quite honestly I’m glad I got both Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmud in Logos.   Many resources reference the Talmud so it’s kind of nice to be able to jump back-and-forth, highlight, copy and paste or create notes  within the Talmud.

 Maybe it won’t take me 7 1/2 years read it 👍😁👌

There is an old Rabbinic maxim: "You don't read Talmud; You live it!"

And by that, they mean to study it, day and night. For the Rabbis, study of Talmud replaced Temple worship. When you study Talmud, it is a proxy - a "stand-in" - for performing an actual sacrifice. In this way, they compensated for the great loss that was the destruction of the Temple in 70 CE.

Thank you, David, for sharing your knowledge!

Everyone may already know this, but here's a link to a thread where you can get the Soncino translation of the Babylonian Talmud to make a PBB.
