Koren Talmud iPad Version

Koren Talmud iPad

On a previous post of mine about the new Koren Talmud, Raphaël Freeman of Koren Publishers commented that there will be an iPad version of the new Koren Talmud. Sure enough, I went to the Koren website and from the photo image above you can clearly see an iPad. In the next few months we are really going to see a nice leap in options for Talmud study.

    Abba's Rantings:

    what will it look like inside? will the translation pick up from random house (for the available volumes) but in a different format?
    why will this be more marketable than the random house edition?
    do you have any details on this edition?

    Raphael Freeman:

    This edition is a completely new translation and design. The whole Talmud will be 41 volumes and no, the translation will not pick up from the Random House edition at all.

    “This edition is a completely new translation and design”

    Abba’s Rantings,

    The only information that I have is from what is written on their website and the comments by Raphael Freeman of Koren.

    We’ll for sure see a leap in options, but there will be no increase in study. It’l be a nice tool for someone who wants to look up a footnote.

    I think the review you’re looking for is at http://530nm330hz.livejournal.com/437268.html

    Betzalel Jakobowitz recently met with administrators at my school (Frisch) about it. It was also written up in today’s Lookjed update…

    By the way, the slogan “isn’t just black and white” was also used in the Conservative Yeshiva. It was on the t-shirt that you posted concerning the Artscroll edition. It said: The Conservative Yeshiva: We Don’t See Things in Black and White.”
    Glad to see that our polychrome view of the world is now being shared by all!
