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.

Rav said ??? of the academy of ??? to Rav Ashi thus Abayye said: The beginning of the teaching is Rabbi Shimon, and the end of the teaching is the rabbis. Rabba said: Everyone acknowledges that if he benefits from the flesh of the holiest of holy offerings that became tamei prior to sprinkling, or from the offal of simple holy offerings after they were put up on the altar this he is exempt from punishment although his action was improper This is obvious! What does it come to ??? What would you have said? The flesh of The holiest of holy offerings that became tamei, it has a commandment to be burned by the priests. The offal of simple holy offerings that it is possible a commandment ??? That is what he was teaching us that Rabba did not say it. And hey, what you already said, ??? A sin-offering shall go to the Sea of Salt These words are specific to the case ??? for him in the presence of atonement But: after atonement ???

The fistful of a meal-offering the frankincense the incense the meal-offering of the priests the meal-offering of the anointed priest and the meal-offering associated with a libation they are subject to the laws of misappropriation from the moment of their being declared holy. Once they become holy by being placed in a vessel, they are subject to disqualification by contact with a tevul yom one who has already immersed in a mikveh but remains tamei until nightfall or one who lacks atonement, or by sitting overnight, but we are guilty on its account due to notar but due to tamei and pigul there is no guilt there. This is the general rule: Anything that has a process that grants permission for it to be used by the priests or placed on the altar we are not guilty on its account due to pigul, notar, and tamei until the process has been performed that grants permission. And anything that does not have a process that grants such permission immediately when it becomes holy by being placed in a vessel we are guilty on its account due to notar and tamei But pigul does not apply

דף י,ב משנה

The offspring of a sin-offering The substitute for a sin-offering and a sin-offering whose owner has died it shall be left to die of natural causes A sin-offering which has passed its year and is too old to offer or which was lost, and then found with a disqualifying blemish, if their owners have already atoned, they shall be allowed to die of natural causes And they do not make a substitute And even though they may not benefit from it It is not subject to the laws of misappropriation.
