        The Mishnah and the Talmud

        This video from the PBS series The Story of the Jews examines the evolution of the Mishnah and Talmud and how they became the foundation of the rebuilding of Jewish life in exile by addressing the dilemma of how to stay Jewish in a non-Jewish world. When the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, it was replaced by an equally vast edifice of words called the Mishnah. The Mishnah is a written record of the Oral Laws categorized by subjects. Over the course of four centuries, the Mishnah expanded into the Talmud that recorded the many interpretations of the Mishnah text by hundreds of Rabbis.
