AuthorSaul Lieberman
PublisherVarda Books
Publication Date


Professor Rabbi Saul Lieberman, the leading Talmudic scholar and researcher of the 20th century and for many years Rector of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, devoted much of his study to the systematic elucidation of the Tosefta. He undertook the publication of the Tosefta text, based on manuscripts and accompanied by brief explanatory notes, and of an extensive commentary called Tosefta ki-Fshutah. This work combines philological research and historical observations with a discussion of the entire talmudic and rabbinic literature in which the relevant Tosefta text is either commented upon or quoted. Between 1955 and 1967 ten volumes of the new edition appeared, representing the text and the commentaries on the orders of Zera'im and Mo'ed and on part of the order of Nashim. Prof. Lieberman's scholarship demonstrates how he combines vast erudition in all fields of Talmudic and Rabbinic literature with a penetrating knowledge of the classical world. Prof. Lieberman Tosephta opened new ways of looking at the institutions, beliefs and literary products of Jewish Palestine in the talmudic period
