[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Davka Corporation today is pleased to announce the release of Talmud Keys, an app for beginning Talmud students that includes more than 500 of the most common Hebrew-Aramaic words, expressions, and abbreviations used in the Talmud, complete with English translation, in an easy-to-use, scrollable dictionary format.
The Talmud, one of the central texts of Jewish law, is written in an esoteric combination of Hebrew and Aramaic that can be difficult to decipher. Users can browse through the word listings, view the words and phrases in alphabetical order, or search the database in Hebrew or English. Each entry contains the original word and its English translation in large Hebrew and English characters.
The dictionary, which was designed by experienced Talmud educators, also includes a separate listing of common Hebrew-Aramaic abbreviations together with their expanded forms and English translation. Talmud Keys contains a helpful listing of the names of every Talmudic tractate and the titles of each chapter. Talmud Keys is a useful tool that helps students improve their Talmud vocabulary and develop the ability to study Talmud independently.
