PREVIEW OF THE DAFCAST WEBSITE FOR CYCLE 13
Please do not forward this link around yet! This is still in development and will be "released", God willing, on August 1, in time for the thirteenth cycle of Daf Yomi.
Disclaimers, Copyright, and Credits
This is an early draft. I haven't proofread; there are plenty of typos and probably some more significant errors as well.
Most pages on this site are currently auto-translated. The autotranslations are intended as a starting point for my manual translations. At best, they are awkward stringing-togethers of words and phrases in the corpus database that can benefit from cleaning up. At worst, they are picking the wrong homograph. Auto-translations are indicated by italics.
I am not a rabbi or an expert. These are my translations, and in some cases I am certainly misunderstanding things.
The Talmud is a document of its time. While the Talmud is a foundational document of Judaism, it must be read in its historical context. There are passages that are xenophobic, sexist, and irreconcilable with modern science. Not everything in these pages represents contemporary Judaism.
This translation is protected by copyright. I'm putting a lot of effort into this project. Please respect that by only copying with my permission.
I intend to provide free licenses for most uses. I plan to use a Creative Commons CC-NC-BY-SA license, which will allow you to re-use my translations as long as you don't charge money for them (NC), as long as you give me credit (BY), and as long as you make your derived work available under the same terms (SA). But I'm not ready to do that yet because this is still a very rough work-in-progress.
In the meantime, if you want to re-use this, please contact me. I am willing to discuss re-use on an ad hoc basis. Perhaps the one page you want to use is actually ready for re-use. Ask. I'll probably work out a way to say "yes."
I need to clean up this section. But for now, I'll note that I've made use of the Hebrew/Aramaic text of the Bavli at Mechon Mamre; Jastrow's dictionary; "The Practical Talmud Dictionary" by Yitzchak Frank. I've also used the big three translations of the Talmud --- Soncino (English), Artscroll (English), and Steinsaltz (Hebrew) --- and the Kehati (English) edition of the Mishna, to help me understand passages before translating them.
Go to daf 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64

One who has had a seminal emission murmurs the reading of Shema in his heart and he does not bless Not before it and not after it but on the meal he does bless after it and he does not bless before it Rabbi Yehudah says he blesses before them and after them

Ravina said This says that murmuring , or reciting silently, is equivalent to speaking in actuality. You might have thought It is not equivalent to speaking For what reason does the Mishna use the specific word murmurs Rather, what can we conclude? murmuring is equivalent to speaking Let him bring forth in his lips ??? at Sinai and Rav Chisda said murmuring is not equivalent to speaking in actuality. You might have thought murmuring equivalent to speaking Let him bring forth in his lips Rather: What then does it mean when it says murmuring is not equivalent to speaking For what reason murmurs Rabbi Eliezer said It is so that it shall not be the whole world is involved regarding it i.e., reciting Shema and he sits and nullify his time so let him read in a chapter other than this Rav Adda bar Ahava said his attention should be In the matter that is the one in which the community is involved
