About - Find It in the Talmud - Encyclopedia

The Talmud—an ancient and seminal text central to Rabbinic Judaism—is the focal point of this reference book. 

With more than 6,000 entries, this book serves as a path finder for those interested in the Talmud and a useful tool for scholars when searching for a particular Talmudic subject.

Anyone, Jew or non-Jew, who wants to know something about how the rabbis in the Talmud conceived of Judaism, the Bible, Jewish history, Jewish concepts and ideologies, and everything else associated with Judaism should acquire and read this comprehensive, clear, and informative encyclopedic collection of over a thousand entries. Find it in the Talmud gives readers, lay and scholar alike, the views of prominent Talmudic rabbis on many subjects in an enjoyable manner. 

Mordechai Judovits arranges his short, to-the-point entries of Talmudic subjects, stories, and expressions in alphabetical order. He summarizes what the Talmud says and gives the sources of the statements. He shows his deep love of the Talmud, which he showed previously in his Sages of the Talmud, a love which his writings make delightfully infectious. 

The book is easy to follow. He identifies subjects dealing with ethics, morality, charity, and justice with a Star of David and anecdotes with the image of a book. The many other subjects receive no special mark. Judovits includes a separate section containing hundreds of interesting Talmudic expressions, such as “even though a Jew sinned, he is still a Jew,” also, contrary to American law, in Judaism “no man may declare himself wicked,” meaning confessions are not accepted in court. He also includes a brief history of the Talmudic sages. 

Examples of Talmudic statements are: Ruth lived to see her descendant Solomon’s kingdom – Solomon was the grandson of her grandson, the prophet Samuel wrote the book of Ruth, and can sacred scrolls be saved from a fire on the Sabbath? 
Examples of tales include the different opinions whether the book of Esther is holy, the story of Rabban Yochanan’s escape from Jerusalem when the city was destroyed in 70 CE, and tales about leaving Israel.
