This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you.

PREFACE 



The author while a student at the Jewish Theological Seminary 
read the introduction of his doctor's thesis on the Yemenite manuscript 
of Pesahim (the property of Columbia University), to Professor 
Alexander Marx, who suggested that it might be well to collate thfef 
remaining Talmudic Yemenite^) manuscripts then in the Columbia Library. 

In as much as the attention of the learned world has within the 
last quarter of a century been focused upon the earliest versions of the 
Talmud, the author while a Student at Columbia University decided to 
follow up Dr. Marx's suggestion and employed his leisui'e hours in the 
collation of this work in order to throw further light upon the current 
text of the Talmud. This was attained by comparing the Bomberg edi- 
tion ef Megilla with the Yemenite text of the tract as well as with se- 
veral other MSS. quoted in the following pages. 

Permission for the use of the Columbia MS. was granted by 
Prof. Gottheil under whom the author edited the MS. of Pesahim. 

Owing to the unsettled conditions in the world today, the authorities 
at Columbia University refused to send the MS. to Canada, and as a 
result the author found it impossible to complete the work begun as a 
student. Reluctant to publish this unfinished tract, but realising that 
the dawn of peace was yet far below the horizon, the author gave way 
to the earnest entreaties of a Canadian Maecenas and allowed this work 
to be published with the daring hope, that his meagre results m.ight be 
of some use to Talmudic scholars. 

At the suggestion of Dr. Marx the author has omitted innumeiable 
glosses which he varified in Rashi. The pagination of the Romberg edition 
is used, yet the order of chapters are similar to those of the MS.

VI PREFACE 

In cdnqlusion the author wishes to express his gratitude to Professors 
Marx and Gottheil, to the former for his kindness in suggesting that 
the work be undertaken, to the latter for permission to use the MS. in 
question. The author also desires to acknowle(^ge his indebtedness to Mr. 
Frederick W. Erb, supervisor of the Loan Dept. of Columbia University 
for the many courtesies shown him in connection with the present work/ 
as w«>ll as to the Publication Committe of Student's Annual of the Jew- 
ish Theological Seminary of America for permission to reproduce th^ 
second chapter of this tract. Lastly he wishes to thank Miss Florence 
Cooper for her kindness in recopying his results for press.

INTRODUCTION 

It ^) has often been asserted by trustworthy travellers who have 
visited the Orient, that the Talmud is not to be found in the entire land 
of Yemen, and that few persons there are acquainted with this encyclopedic 
work of the Jewish mind. ^) In contradistinction to this statement. 
Neubauer, in an article dealing with the literature of Yemen, ') called 
attention to the fact that Mr. Ephraim Deinard then travelling in Europe, 
had in his possession manuscripts of five Maseeh toth of the Babylonian 
Talmud, which he hoped some European University would acquire. The 
collection offered for sale by Mr. Deinard came from Southern Arabia 
and had been sent to him by his late brother-in-law who had travelled 
in that country for a number of years. The entire Deinard collection, 
to which Neubauer had referred, was acquired for Columbia University 
in 1890. ^3 The existence of these MSS. proves that the Talmud has been 
studied in Yemen in the past. There is also proof that it is being studied 
there at the present time, 'j 

Two codices of the Deinard collection, were written by the same 
scribe. One volume contains the Masechtoth Bezah (pp. 1—33) and 
Pesahim') (pp. 78—152). The other volume contains Megilla fpp. 1—33), 
Mo'edKatonO (pp. 84—66), and Zebahim^) (pp. 66—129). Page 130 is blank. 

The name of the scribe is given in the following subscription found 
at the end odP Bezah inai D^K': n*i miPD p in ino« p y'^iv "»Tiyn ina

to bring near salvation. Amen, Amen. The month of Mar-Cheshwan, the 
yea]^,lS58, according to the era of contracts (Sel. 1546) in the province 
of Sanaa. 

From the subscriptions we learn (a) that the scribe's name was 
David ben Meoded ben Saadia ben Joseph, (b) that he was a reader in 
the synagogue, fc) that the date of the manuscript is Mar-Chesfawan, 
1858 (Sel 1546), and fdj that it was written in Sanaa. 

Still another subscription, written partly in Arabic and partdy in 
Aramaic, which Professor Gottheil has translated at the end of Dr. 
Margolis's little pamphlet reads as follows: 5 "Was present and recog- 
nises us binding Musa ibn Said, that he has bought this portion of the 
Gemara from Abraham as-Sudi, its price being three Qurush. [The sale] 
was completed in the presence of the witnesses in the year two thousand 
and one, in the city as-Sud, which is situated by the lake called Ahsan. 
This happened on the eighteenth day of the month Tebeth. We witness 
and attest [it].

INTRODUCTION IX 

The MS. of Megilla which we have here examined is included in the 
volunie which contains Mo'ed Katon and Zebahim, and is to be found on 

• • • 

pp. laSda. The MS. is written on yellow paper (11, 2x8, 2 inches of 
which 9x5, 8 is written over by the text.) The outer and lower margins 
are wider thaa the inner and upper ones. The number of lines on each 
page is thirty five. At the lower right hand corner of each leaf of the 
MS. is ^^itten the first word of the next page, just as in the printed 
edition of the Talmud. 

The marginal notes sometimcR cover all the available space on the 
margin. Although in Mo'ed Katon the marginal notes as a rule are 
written in Arabic, in our text they are always ^litten in Hebrew. They 
are always introduced by the words inj;3 (in the 'Arukh", or b^T ^ri3T 
(May the memory of my teachers be for a blessing). In the marginal 
notes and corrections two hand may be distinguished, one evidently that 
of the scribe himself. All the notes beginning with the words ^ny^ I 
have verified in the 'Arukh. Several notes introduced by the words 
y^T ^^i2'^ I have verified with comparatively slight changes in spelling 
in Alfasi. 

On the margin are found also a number of passages which the first 
scribe originally overlooked and which he must have inserted latter. 

On the whole the MS. seems to have been written very carefully. 
It contains only a few dittographies and mistakes which are of minor 
importance. We notice however, some inverted expressions and many 
transposed passages. These fortunately however, do not impar the 
meaning of the text. 

I have found in the manuscript a few explanatory passages fulfilling 
that purpose which the Talmudic commentary of Rashi does at the 
present time. 

A careful examination of the text will reveal the fact that several 
text corrections are in a later hand, and in brown ink. The corrections by
