Oqimta: Studies in Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature

The Jews were, and remain, formidable interpreters of Scripture, so it makes sense to post this resource here.

From the web site:
Oqimta is a digitized research journal devoted to all spheres and types of talmudic and rabbinical literature – Halakha and Agada
The articles in this journal undergo academic appraisal and redaction, and are published in the accepted languages for Judaica research.
Oqimta appears once a year, in digitized form, and is available free of charge to the reading public. Articles that have completed the publication process are uploaded to the site prior to the finalization of the volume, and can be found on the "In Publication" page.
We are pleased to present Oqimta 2 (5774 [2014]) containing eight articles. We take this opportunity to invite you to subscribe to our mailing list (see subscribe), and to send us your submissions (see Instructions for Authors).
