By Jacob Neusner / Wipf & Stock / 2007
This is the first of a five-part presentation of the Mishnaic law of women. Jacob Neusner provides a translation and explanation of Yebamot, the Mishnah tractate that deals with the heavenly intervention into the formation and dissolution of marriage, the effect of death on the marital bond, and the dissolution of that bond through death. Neusner examines Yebamot chapter by chapter, comparing the themes in it with those found in other Mishnah tractates and other passages of Scripture.
