Detail Description

Pocket size edition of the tractate, the last tractate – according to the customary arrangement – of the order Mo'ed in the Mishnah, Tosefta, and the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds. It is also called Reʾiyyah. The Mishnah contains three chapters. 1:1–2:4 deal with the laws of peace-offerings which were offered during the festivals (hence the name of the tractate) and with kindred subjects such as the duty of pilgrimage (re'iyyah, "appearance," hence the alternative name of the tractate), and the laws of sacrifices during the festival in general. From 2:5 until the end of the tractate it deals with the laws of ritual purity and impurity connected with sacred objects and the Temple. The mishnayot 1:8–2:1 are entirely different from the rest of the tractate and have a character of their own. Mishnah Ḥagigah preserves many traditions deriving from the Temple period and most of the scholars mentioned in it belong to that period.

Hebrew Description

עם פירוש רש"י ותוספות והרא"ש. והוספתי עוד חדושי מהרש"א ... בשולי היריעה ... נעשה בכרך קטן ... שנת ולמדתם' א'ת'ם' א'ת בניכם לפ"ק

כל שני עמודים בהוצאה זו מהווים עמוד אחד של ההוצאהת הרגילות. ללא מסורת הש"ס, עין משפט ונר מצוה ותורה אור. המהרש"א נדפסו חדושי הלכות בלבד.
