The Talmud is the written version of the Oral Torah, if that's what you mean.
Thank you! I was trying to remember the name since I read this thread. Thanks.
I always thought the Talmud was essentially what I would call the Old Covenant or Old Testament plus those darned Macabees.
And that the Talmud (several versions I think depending on where those Jews were at the time?) was the work of rabbinical scholars which in some versions contains fairly modern Ashkhenzaim European contributions like from the late 1800s.
In any event, I think most traditions should be preserved and I admire those who try.
Many Americans these days live to destroy tradition sadly.
What is the old tradition of the bondage on the arm and 10 commandments hanging in front of the eye from a head contraption? My old buddy who went uber-Orthodox started with that.
