Neusner (religious studies, U. of South Florida and Bard College) demonstrates that the Yerushalmi is not a random collection, but rather an orderly and purposive compilation forming a commentary to the Mishnah by identifying the complete units of discourse of the document. This volume provides a translation of the four chapters of the Yerushalmi Niddah. Neusner uses several methods to help make this commentary accessible. For example, he sets off the text (Mishna) in bold type, while the commentary is in regular type and he highlights the Talmudic commentaries which were written in Aramaic (vs. those written in Hebrew) with italics.
