Talmud to be translated into Italian

The Talmud will be translated for the first time into Italian thanks to an official collaboration between the Italian government and the Italian Jewish community.

A protocol launching “Project Talmud” was signed Friday in Rome by cabinet ministers, the president of Italy’s National Research Council, the president of the umbrella Union of Italian Jewish Communities (UCEI) and Rome’s chief rabbi.

The project foresees the translation of the original Aramaic version of the Babylonian Talmud, with commentaries, as well as an introductory volume about the structure, contents and language of the Talmud.

UCEI president Renzo Gattegna said the initiative demonstrated how “the cultural collaboration between state institutions and the reality of Italian Judaism has assumed new awareness and meaningful commitment.”
