[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Davka Corporation today is pleased to announce the release of Talmud Keys 1.1, an updated version of its popular Hebrew-English dictionary app used by Talmud students. This updated version allows users to add additional Hebrew-Aramaic words, utilizing right-to-left text entry for Hebrew, and standard left-to-right text entry for English translation. This added feature makes the product much more flexible and usable, as students can now add additional words that they have learned in the course of their Talmud studies, that are not in the original list included with the app. New words added are automatically sorted in Hebrew alphabetical order with the existing dictionary entries.
Talmud Keys comes with a core word listing of 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.
