    I have my grandfather's Jastrow on my shelf, a little dusty, and very worn, but it gives me a warm feeling inside. The other stuff looks very intersting. Very nice blog by the way, especially what the Rav told you about women aliyot.

    Dr Zahavy
    What do you think of Guggenheims new translation of Yerushalmi? Is it any good? (in relation of course to Neusner's)
    Also, to what extent is it true that Goren's commentary on Yerushalmi (Berakhot, I beleive, is also your forte) plagiarizes from Frankel?
    thanks!

    Goren's commentary is good. I don't think he plagiarized.

    Supposedly, Goren 'stole' from Ginzberg.

    Work on a new electronic edition is underway by the folks at Logos Bible Software. It has extensive linking, tagging, and search tools--even for words (in any language) buried in any of the 30,000 entries. All cross-references are linked directly to their entry, and all references to the Hebrew Bible are also linked. Thought you might be interested:
