A classic and still standard resource, Marcus Jastrow's monumental dictionary remains unique in that it covers both the Hebrew and the Aramaic languages used in the literature of the rabbinic period. This indispensable dictionary of targumic and rabbinic literature includes thousands of entries in fully vocalized Hebrew and Aramaic, with references to the original texts, clear English definitions, and the full range of meanings and usages in the sources. It is organized alphabetically by actual form but also includes references to the root of words and abundant cross-references. Complete in one volume, in a reader friendly format and page size, with a sturdy binding and an index of scriptural quotations, it is the most comprehensive single-volume dictionary available for reading early Jewish texts.
