New Menahot part 1, English edition
Tractate Menaĥot discusses the halakhot of various offerings, specifically those that are brought from grain, i.e., wheat or barley, as well as the libations of oil and wine sacrificed in the Temple. Menaĥot therefore complements tractate Zevaĥim, which examines the halakhot of offerings brought from livestock or birds, and there are many parallels between the two tractates.

Maimonides' Mishneh Torah
More than a decade ago Rabbi Steinsaltz convened a large group of teachers and students
from the Tekoa Yeshiva, and announced that the time has finally come (after a few false
starts) to make an old dream of his come true: to create a new edition of Maimonides'
Mishneh Torah which will be updated and adapted to contemporary Halachah and its
implementation in the modern world.
Mishneh Torah is the most comprehensive Halachic work there is, and one of the literary
cornerstones of Judaism. The Shulhan Melakhim edition of Mishneh Torah has thus been
added to Rabbi Steinsaltz's other literary projects which make the fundamental texts of
Judaism accessible to the Jewish people. In addition, the main novelty of this edition is that
it goes beyond the text of the Mishneh Torah, and gives a broader and up-to-date picture of
Halachah, with the wide spectrum of different opinions and customs, and with halachic
developments from Maimonides' time to our own day and age.

Talmud – the Book of Sanity
Most of the people that are here tonight are, to me, beloved people. It is possibly my weakness, but I like the people around me. But beyond that, we are all connected by our common ancestry, by our blood, by our common dreams, by our wish to continue being in the future.
