There is no Rashi on Yerushalmi (Shekalim specifically), and (I find that) the Gemara doesn't really explain itself as well as Bavli.

What are good free (hebrewbooks.org) running commentaries on Shekalim (like, say, the Pesher Davar)?

    Are you asking about commentaries to Shekalim or all of Yerushalmi? @sam Who said anything was wrong with them?

  • @sam no Pnei Moshe on Shekalim, and Korban KaEida isn't as complete Commented Nov 24, 2013 at 21:40

    @ShmuelBrin What does that mean? Would an answer recommending the Pnei Moshe be no good? What about one that recommends a Perush only to masechet Nazir? Horyot? Demai?

This website provides a pretty decent Hebrew commentary on most of the Yerushalmi: http://www.yedidnefesh.com/yerushalmi/yerushalmi.htm

This is a website which is a great resource for Yerushalmi and has many different commentaries, manuscripts, and essays. I have not gone through all of it, but do recommend Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky's commentary, which is hosted on HebrewBooks. http://www.yerushalmionline.org/ (click on the left pane "Seforim on Yerushalmi" to get the list)

Here is a very good commentary to Yerushalmi. This may be what you are looking for, and so far they only have Shekalim and Rosh Hashana. http://www.talmudyerushalmi.org/download-page/


I am a big fan of הירושלמי כפשוטו the commentary of Rabbi Shaul Lieberman zt"l though it is only on 3 mesechtot

    I thought it was on Brachot too.
