Megillah 28b (English) ההוא דהוי תני הלכתא סיפרא וסיפרי ותוספתא ושכיב אתו ואמרו ליה לרב נחמן ליספדיה מר אמר היכי נספדיה הי צנא דמלי סיפרי דחסר there was a certain man who used to repeat halachoth, Sifra and Sifre and Tosefta, and when he died they came and said to R. Nahman, Sir, will you deliver a funeral oration for him, and he said, How are ...

The Soncino has an introduction to a) The Talmud, b) Each Order, c) Each Tractate. You can see most of them here: http://halakhah.com/

Look at the introduction of the מאירי to each masechta, where he breaks down the topics of the masechta in general as well as perek by perek. (He also does that in a more perek-specific manner at the beginning of each perek.) While not usually online, the Hebrewbooks website has the בית הבחירה -- just search for "בית הבחירה." Here is an example of an ...

The Rashb"o in Chindushai HaHagodos (Mosad Horav Kook) to Brochos 54b states that after a long halachik discussion the Ameroim switched to Agadato to awaken the students.

I think the real answer is that he meant 15b. ויהי בימי שפוט השופטים. דור ששופט את שופטיו. אמר לו טול קיסם מבין עיניך. אומר לו טול קורה מבין עיניך. אמר לו כספך היה לסיגים. אמר לו סבאך מהול במים. And it was in the days of the judges judging. The generation was judging the judges. The judge would say remove a twig from between your eyes, the person would ...

It's called המתרגם. The reason it's hard to find is because it is not consistently printed in the same place in all masechtos. Check before and after the Maharsha, that's usually where the printers found place to squeeze it in. The standard Vilna 'Shaar Blaat' mentions it's collation at the bottom of side two in the section ומלבד כל אלו הוספנו by number 15, ...

Megila 30a - 9 lines from the bottom has a dispute as to what is the third Shabbos. The Tanna Kama says the Shabbos immediately after Purim, and Rabbi Chama B'Rab Chanina says it is the Shabbos that is closer to Nissan. The Gemara says there is no dispute, it depends when Rosh Chodesh Nisaan occurs. If it occurs on Shabbos then Parshas Para will be read on ...

אין אדם רואה חוב אצל עצמו. כתובות קה ע׳ב. This is in a few other places in ש׳ס too.

It is not necessarily complete; the matter is more complicated than it may seem because neither Talmud is always so clear as to how it views the final halakha, and complicated further by the fact that we don't have such a reliable text of the Yerushalmi in many instances. Most commentaries 'on the daf' of the Yerushalmi tend to minimize the differences ...

In a standard Shas, all the Masechtot are printed, even those without Bavli on them. For example, at the end of Vol. 1 - Brachot - you will find all the Mishnayot of Zeraim with Rishonim (usually the ר"ש, IIRC). At the end of Niddah you will find the rest of Taharot. In Mo'ed the only tractate without Bavli is Shekalim - so it was added. As to why it was ...

Its none other than Eliyahu Hanavi as you can see from Berachos 6b : ההוא גברא דקא מצלי אחורי בי כנישתא ולא מהדר אפיה לבי כנישתא חלף אליהו חזייה אידמי ליה כטייעא ,that Eliyahu appeared as an Arab merchant. There are more sources which indicate him as such. The gemara in Bava Basra 73b brings this story: ואמר רבה בר בר חנה זימנא חדא הוה קא אזלינן במדברא ...

Mishna Berura 167:51 says that the word רחמנא in Hashems name in Lashon Bavli. I would imagine that since the Talmud Bavli was not written in Hebrew they used the name of Hashem which was popular in the then current day vernacular.

In the Artscroll gemara, it has the text of: הדרן עלך מסכת נדה (ותלמוד בבלי) והדרך עלן. etc So, it seems that no. As for siyum shas mishnayot, i speak from experience that there is a special hadran, so perhaps there is for gemara as well, but just not in my sefer.

I can answer only 1 of your questions, as I have memorized the names of all the 63 tractates ... unless you want to include the "small tractates" that appear after Avodah zarah (such as Avot D'Rav Nattan) - I think that would add another 5 or 6 to that number. Many tractates only have mishnah - not Gemarrah. Wikipedia article on Talmud should provide you ...

The Maharal says that these were Arab merchants he does not understand the word טייעא‏ to mean traveler. מצינו פעמים הרבה בישמעאלים שהם סוחרים, שבכל מקום שאמר בתלמוד ההוא טייעא רוצה לומר סוחר ישמעאלי [גבורות ה' פרק יא] "We find many times that Arabs are merchants, for in every place in the Talmud where it says "there was a merchant" the meaning is an Arab ...

Deuteronomy 17:1 על-פי התורה אשר יורוך, ועל-המשפט אשר-יאמרו לך--תעשה: לא תסור, מן-הדבר אשר-יגידו לך--ימין ושמאל This verse is understood to grant legislative power to the Sanhedrin for all time. There were Sanhedrins in session up to several centuries after the time of Esther and that is where all fully-binding rabbinic Law as we know it comes from. ...

R. Sherira Gaon (Iggeres R. Shrira Gaon) famously writes that "it was decided" that Amoraim cannot argue on tannaim.

No. This is a commonly stated rule post-Talmud, but it is also simply accepted without debate in the Talmud. One example is Gitten 49b-50a where Mar Zutra makes a statement that when the Mishna says that when land is foreclosed on to collect a Kesuba the land taken from the least valuable-per-acre land (Ziburis) it is only referring to if the husband dies ...

There seems to be such a publication - and you can see the Tractate on Bava Metzia here. I can't figure out how to get to the other volumes, if they exist. It was written by R' Nisim Binyamin Ochana, and printed in Port Sa'id in 1929

The Ein Mishpat Ner Mitswa lists the places that these subjects are mentioned in the Halachic works. Each paragraph has a number (counting from the beginning of the chapter), and one or more letters indicating where on the page it's referring to. 21 א Tur and Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chayim, chapter 320, section 18. 22 א ב Maimonides, chapter 5 of the ...

In the introduction to the Shulchan Aruch, the Mechaber, HaRav HaGaon Yosef Caro Z"tzl explained that his work was meant to be learned over a period of 30 days. (lol) Thus, from a stand point such as that, the basic source of psak halacha shouldn't take more than a month or so to actually take in at least on a basic level. The Talmud on the other hand can ...

Talmudic style uses the Socratic method of learning, which is somewhat unique. First, it encourages stduenst to learn from each other rather than from the teacher ("chevruta" style). Second, the style of learning in the Talmud is based on questions and answers - proofs and rebuttals - much like a debate. This style is unique to the Talmud. The Torah doesn't ...

you cannot split it by both chapters and daf. it's either one or the other since dafim overlap in chapters. closest thing I know of is this though there is some overlap as before http://hadranalach.com/index.php?action=t_view&id=16#tabs here is a word doc version http://hadranalach.com/static/shas_lefi_daf.docx
