The Order of the Talmud

An introduction and insight

The Talmud is grouped into six sections called Orders as seen on the right. It appears from the Talmud, in the past, there were more than these six Orders. In fact there were even some books of the Talmud which had many more chapters than we have today. For example the Talmud says Avraham’s copy of the Tractate called “Avodah Zarah” contained four hundred chapters while today we have only five.

One of the great teachers of the last century, the Sfat Emet, pointed out that these six orders reflect the passage of life beginning with the discovery of the physical world (Seeds) culminating with the realization of the infinite light bound in a person’s soul (Purity).

Because this is the People’s Talmud we have a lot of wonderful people who have volunteered as editors and proof readers. (You can see their names on our Volunteer Page found on We Believe in Angels, below). This means that many entries on the Result Pages will have different styles. Sometimes even different spellings like Shabbat or Shabbos. We’re cool with that. In fact it reminds us of the joke you might enjoy. A mother buys her son for his birthday two ties, one red and one blue. To please his mom, the son runs upstairs and puts on the blue tie to show her how nice it looks. When he comes down she only complains, “What’s the matter? You didn’t like the red tie?” So, your choice – Shabbat or Shabbos.
