Koren Publishers restored sections of the Talmud that had been removed due to censorship. Have any other publishers of Shas done the same thing?

Oz Vehadar, while often reliant on manuscripts/other editions of the Talmud, want to maintain the pagination of the original Vilna Shas. As such, they bring all the censored passages, but as a side note in their "Hagahos VeTizyunim".

The new Moznaim gemarros inserted the deleted passages within the text. For example, compare an original Vilna Shas Sanhedrin 43a, and the new Moznaim version with deleted passages added (see Mesoras HaShas note 10).

  • Interesting, thank you. Is pagination the only reason why those publishers don't include those sections in the main body of text?

    I would assume most publishers don't want to tamper with the original Vilna Shas. Some add it on the side, and some insert it into the text.

  • I know I saw one edition that put it in as the main text, but in a different font or slightly smaller size, to let you know that it's been restored after censorship. Anyone recall who did it that way?
