This is the third of a five-part presentation of the Mishnaic law of Appointed Times. Jacob Neusner provides a translation and explanation of three different Mishnah-tractates: Sheqalim, Yoma, and Sukkah. Sheqalim pertains to the collection of the sheqel-tax—a poll tax owed by Israelite males. Yoma is a narrative about the way in which the high priest spends the week before the Day of Atonement. Sukkah deals with the feast of tabernacles. Neusner examines these three tractates chapter by chapter, comparing the themes in them with those found in other Mishnah tractates and other Scripture.
