   Tractate Berakhot and Seder Zeraim of the Talmud Yerushalmi with commentaries. This edition was simoultainsly published in Shklov where the partner of Israel b. Isaac Jaffa, Mordecai Horowitz, opened a press. The approbations by R. Levi Isaac of Berditchev, R. Hayyim of Valozhin, R. Arye Leib Katzenellenbogen of Brisk, and R. Israel Mirkis of Minsk are all issued to Horowitz. Many articles have been written on these two edition with no conclusive evidence on where the book was actually printed. In any event the title page was certainly printed in Kopys by Jaffa.

The printer, Israel b. Isaac Jaffe, was a disciple of R. Menahem Mendel of Vitebsk and R. Shneur Zalman of Liady. Jaffe is known for his printing the first editions of many Hasidic works of the Besht and the Ba'al ha-Tanya.

Also known as the Palestinian Talmud, Yerushalmi, Talmud of the Land of Israel, Talmud of the West, Talmud of the Western Lands, and in modern times as the Jerusalem Talmud. The product of the Palestinian schools during the amoraic period, which extended from the third to the fifth century C.E. The Talmud marks the writings of Jewish law and tradition, of which it is the most important production. It has not been preserved in its entirety. Large portions of it were entirely lost at an early date,while other parts exist only in fragments. The editio princeps (ed. Bomberg, Venice, 1523 et seq.), on which all later editions are based, terminates with the following remark: "Thus far we have found what is contained in this Talmud; and we have endeavored in vain to obtain the missing portions." Of the six orders of the Mishnah, the fifth, Kodashim, is missing entirely from the Talmud Yerushalmi, while of the sixth, Tohorot, it contains only the first three chapters of the treatise Niddah.
