Seder Moed Resources

This page contains links to the full text of Seder Moed in English and in Hebrew, divided by tractate; introductions to Seder Moed; commentaries, downloadable source sheets from the weekly Hadar Beit Midrash, and other resources.

 

Introductions to the mishnah in general are available from Rabbi Simchah Roth, Joshua Kulp, and Rabbi Neal Loevinger.

Notes:

 

The English links are for a translation of the entire Talmud (Mishna plus Gemara), but the sections comprising the mishna are always prefaced by "MISHNA" and followed by "GEMARA."

 

The Hebrew links above (MM) do not have vowels. Other than these links, everything else in this table is in English (the Simchah Roth links do have the Hebrew text of the mishnah, but also have translation and commentary in English).

 

The Kehati mishnayot are grouped by week, with more recent weeks near the top, so to start from the beginning of a tractate, scroll to the bottom of a page. Unfortunately, the weeks are still arranged top-down (i.e., most recent at the bottom), so check the mishnah numbering when using these links.

 

The Joshua Kulp files (called Mishnah Yomit on the website) are arranged in chronological order (they are daily emails with mishnah text and commentary in English). The link for each massechet (tractate) is the first mishnah in each of them, and then you should be able to click on "previous (more recent) message" to find the next mishnah and so on. You can also use the main link at the top of the table to look at all of the posts in a given month (after you click on a month, click on "Sort by date" or the posts will appear out of order).

 

The Rabbi Simchah Roth files are from a weekly mishnah study group set up in memory of Yitzhak Rabin z"l (RMSG stands for Rabin Mishnah Study Group).

Many thanks to Josh Greenfield for the above table of links and information, which were assembled for learning in memory of Josh's grandfather, Joseph Greenfield z"l.
