    Default Targum Yonatan?

    Hi everyone;

    Does anyone know if there is a module for Targum Yonatan (Yerushalami) in Aramaic for BW8? I am also interested in midrashim and any other rabbinical literature.

    Thanks

    Default Targumim in BW

    Per the BW web site:
    The Targumim, parsed, lemmatized and tied to entries in the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon. Also included:
    • FragTargums with morphology, TgSheniSuppEsther with morphology, TgTosefProphets with morphology
    • Psalms Targum (English)
    • Rodkinson Babylonian Talmud and Mishnah
      (English)
    • Targum Cairo Geniza with morphology
    • Targum Jerusalem on the Pentateuch (English) (Etheridge)
    • Targum Neofiti with morphology
    • Targum NeofMarginalia with morphology
    • Targum Onkelos on the Pentateuch (English) (Etheridge)
    • Targum Pseudo Jonathan on the Pentateuch (Etheridge)
    • Targum PseudoJonathan with morphology
    • Targumim (Mostly Onkelos and Jonathan) with morphology (updated 2005)

    I'm assuming that when you say "Targum Yonatan (Yerushalami)" that you mean Pseudo-Jonathan. As you can see, it's all there and morph-tagged and has CAL Lexicon glosses provided in BW8 along with the Etheridge translation.

    There is at least one midrash collection available for BW, Lewis Ginzberg's Legends of the Jews. (Get it HERE from the BW blog.) It's only the first 4 vols, so you'll have to do a little digging to check out the invaluable notes in vols 5-6.
    [A little help: Note that Volume 5 with footnotes to vols 1-2 has the "Search Inside" feature on Amazon. Similarly, check out Volume 6 (notes to vols 3-4) and Volume 7 (indices).]

    Hi
    I am interested in this as well.
    Actually, I am looking for Targum jonathan to the Prophets - espc. the Targum on Esaiah. It can be found in English translation in The Aramaic Bible, vol. 11.

    But it does not seem that the Aramaic text has made it into BW.

    What are the story behind this Targums and BW? What are the reason behind some are included and others not?

    This should be in the TAR/TAM version. (There's no English translation available in BW.)

    Default Targum Isaiah English

    As Jim notes, the Aramaic is in BW in the TAR/TAM.

    Targum Isaiah in English is available here in Google books:
    http://books.google.com/books?id=_bo...aphrase+Isaiah

    It's an 1871 edition by Pauli, so you would still want to consult Chilton's newer translation, but it's a start. This would be a good link to add to ERMIE.

    Thank you, Dr. Hoffman, but it appears the link on the blog site is faulty?

    Hi Mark
    Thanks for these links (although I cannot get anything out of Google. I can type in something like '53' and it returns some broken pages ... no reading of entire passages seems possible).

    One other thing: do you know why only some Targumim are included in BW? What is the story behind the present collection?

    Also: there are an English version of some of it available in a user database.
