I'm looking for a source of data that tells me where each chapter of Mishna starts in the Talmud (Babylonian, bonus points for Jerusalem.) (I'm looking for Vilna daf numbers, and whatever the equivalent is called in the Jerusalem Talmud.) If I can find one that tells me where each Mishna starts, that would be even better.

Anyone got anything for me?

Edit: To be clear, I need all of them, as data, computer readable, in one place. Printed reference doesn't do me much good.

  • I'd have to check to be sure, but I seem to recall that Koren references mishnayos by the Vilna daf numbers.

    The breakup of Mishna in the Talmuds is different (from each other and) from the stand-alone printed Mishnayot.

    @DoubleAA ... and more to the point (since the question doesn't ask about the breakup into mishnayos), so is the ordering of chapters.

  • @msh210 - Interesting! Which chapters switch around?

  • @Laizer IIRC chapters of M'nachos are in a different order in the Bavli from their order in the mishnayos. I seem vaguely to recall the same is true of P'sachim but I may be confusing that with some other quirk P'sachim has.

I didn't find a good source for this information, so we (at Sefaria.org) analyzed our text, did some pattern recognition, corrected by hand, double checked, and came up with an authoritative mapping between the Mishnah and the Babylonian Talmud. Line numbers here refer to the segmentation in Sefaria's online Talmud.


You could go to Machon Mamre and download the entire Bavli and Yerushalmi.

They seem to have a very standardized format for highlighting when the Mishna starts and what page it's on. You can then parse the data and create this index.
