When saying or writing "Talmud Yerushalmi" can this include (or refer to) the Midrash

For example.
In the Tanya (Chabad) chapter 37 it says

ובכל תלמוד ירושלמי היא נקראת בשם מצוה סתם

But it was only once or twice found in the Talmud Yerushalmi, but it is a few times in the Midrash (1 and 2) , is it possible that the words Talmud Yerushalmi include the Midrash?

Souce please

    Can you clarify what you mean to be included in "the midrash"? – Double AA Jul 23 '18 at 5:19

  • THere are Midrashim that are later than the JT, hence the JT is mentioned. – Al Berko Jul 23 '18 at 6:51
  • one of those links has a link to this pdf: forum.otzar.org/download/… -- It goes through a bunch of sources that discuss how Mitzvah refers to Tzedakah – Menachem Jul 23 '18 at 7:53

    @hazoriz Forgive the apparent vagueness. I meant: "No, [the words Talmud Yerushalmi] do not [include the Midrash], not since after the era of the Rishonim." The medieval rabbis, even Geonim, would refer to a 'Talmud Eretz Yisroel' (or 'Yerushalmi') when speaking of a midrash (or, occasionally, to older kabbalistic works) which was compiled in EY. But, that tendency ceased with the Rishonim. An example: Rashi, here, cites 'Yerushalmi' and as Buber notes we don't have such a Yerushalmi, though it is a midrash (Ex. Rab. 8:3). – Oliver Jul 23 '18 at 15:03
