What is the Talmud?

"The layout of the Talmud, one of the most important Jewish texts, has remained virtually unchanged since its earliest days in print. This layout reveals a compelling look at Jewish values. What part did Daniel Bomberg - a Christian printer in Venice play in its publication, what’s behind the concept of “daf yomi” (reading a page of Talmud a day) and why has the Talmud’s graphic design not changed for generations?" from video introduction

The Talmud ( Hebrew: תַּלְמוּד‎ Tálmūḏ) is the central text of Rabbinic Judaism and the primary source of Jewish religious law (halakha) and Jewish theology. Until modern times in nearly all Jewish communities, the Talmud was at the center of Jewish cultural life and was foundational to "all Jewish thought and aspirations", serving also as "the guide for the daily life" of Jews.
