Is it Kosher? The Talmud Explains in Tractate Hullin as Translated by Tzvee Zahavy

Highly recommended for all Jewish homes, synagogues and libraries, and an excellent gift idea.

Superior to the Artscroll or Soncino translations...

Just in time for Daf Yomi daily Talmud study of this tractate, a reminder that University Press of America published these two volumes.

Tzvee Zahavy and a professor


This work sets forth the main points of the Halakhah of the topological expositions or tractates of the Mishnah-Tosefta-Bavli Hullin and lays out the theological message of the tractate. It yields a systematic account of the Halakhah in its documentary unfolding.

The uniqueness of
Tzvee Zahavy’s expertise in the academic study of the Talmud and in the analytical interpretation of Jewish prayer stems from his background, training, and accomplishment. He was ordained at Yeshiva University, where he studied with Rav Joseph B. Soloveitchik and Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein. He received his PhD from Brown University. He has taught more than 6000 students and received awards for his Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship from Yeshiva University and for Distinguished Teaching from the University of Minnesota. He was awarded fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, and the American Council of Learned Societies, and he served since 2009 as adjunct professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.

The real measure of so and so’s contribution to the study of religion emerges from the originality, excellence, and scope of his learning.  —from the Encyclopaedia Judaica, second edition.

Is this a good way to study Hullin for semicha?

Special offer, today only. Order both, receive semicha as a bonus ;>)... but seriously, yes Hullin is a difficult tractate and this will help get you through the complicated texts.
