Is there an English translation of Rashi's commentary on the Talmud available online?

  • I don't even think there's a version in print. It wouldn't be popular because all the translations (Artscroll, etc.) already incorporate Rashi into their translation and footnotes. – b a Jun 27 '12 at 18:51
  • @ba, I'd consider those to be print versions. If there's an online English Talmud with Rashi, that would suffice. I've seen one on a Christian site. I don't know how complete it is, nor how accurate it is, but I would not rely on it. – Seth J Jun 27 '12 at 18:56
  • I meant to say that there isn't one in print, kal vechomer there isn't one available online for free. Are you saying that you want a translation of the Talmud that incorporates Rashi into the translation and footnotes? – b a Jun 27 '12 at 20:17

    Seth asked this question on my behalf (thanks cousin). The background to the question: AFAIK Rashi's commentary on the Talmud has never been translated into English. Yes, modern English translations (Artscroll, Steinsaltz) refer to Rashi in their translation and footnotes -- but that is not really the same thing. And it occurred to me that the internet could solve this problem: Imagine a crowdsourced translation project, in which people around the world contribute translations of 1-2 sentences at a time. ... – user1664 Jun 28 '12 at 20:04

    The public are working on it over at Sefaria! – WAF Jul 3 '14 at 13:36

Apparently Rashi on the Talmud has not been translated into English... yet.

    It seems apparent to me. The word apparent is relative; I can be my own source. When a translation comes out on the Internet, then we can edit my answer. – Adam Mosheh Jul 2 '12 at 19:31

There is no translation of Rashi, but I would suggest using the Text-format Rashi on Shas online at Hebrewbooks.org; they put Shas, Rashi, and Tosafot in a format similar to the Bar Ilan cd, which allows for easy learning, word-by-word.

    How do you know that "there is no translation of Rashi" into English? – Double AA Aug 2 '12 at 0:22
  • @DoubleAA It seems that it probably would have gotten more publicity if it existed. Of course, it's often said that you can't prove a negative. – b a Aug 2 '12 at 6:43
  • @ba That logic, while formally flawed, would at least potentially be his source. As it is now it is an assertion in a vacuum. – Double AA Aug 2 '12 at 6:45
  • However, if you look at SethJ's definition which he gave in his comment, it appears that there are translations, just not online. – b a Aug 2 '12 at 6:48

Pretty sure rashi is included either in parenthesis or footnotes, check their introduction for a guide to formatting http://halakhah.com/indexrst.html
