Newly formatted Soncino Talmud freely available

Here's a very happy announcement to make. Reuven Brauner worked with diligence and toil on an important labor of love, to make the Soncino Edition of the Talmud (which had been available as barely formatted text) into a highly readable and attractive two-columned format that is a pleasure to consult.

It is now being hosted at Kol hakavod to Reuven, who's website is (and to for hosting it).

And no this is not a paid advertisement - in fact it was I who contacted Reuven to congratulate him and I expressed my wish to link to it.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I wouldn't have known about this otherwise...

  2. thanks, as a user of the previous unformatted version, I can still heartily recommend the search for daf number as the quickest way to find pages on the fly. search for 64b and if a couple of references come up in the meantine just hit return until you get there.

  3. Cool! And it's not even put out by a rabid anti-Semite!

  4. Wow, that's really great! Thanks to all involved.

    p.s. Now we gotta start working on Artscroll ;-P

  5. It's a welcome improvement on the existing transcription, and it's doubly welcome because (as Balashon says) that transcription was circulated by a pro-Nazi group.

  6. Does anyone know the copyright status of the Soncino translation? It would be nice if it was freely available, making it possible to offer improved versions online.

  7. Does anyone by any chance know if Amiel was Rabbi Moshe Avigdors real last name, or did he change it when he came to Israel?
    (I know it has nothing to do with the discussion, but I have no where else to ask it)

  8. Soncino Talmud I have always said is a masterpiece.

  9. I think thiѕ is among the moѕt important іnfo fоr me.
    And і'm glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The website style is wonderful, the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers
