What is Targum Yerushalmi (Neofiti)?

  • This targum, based on a single known manuscript (Neofiti 1) in the Vatican Library copied in 1504, is the only known complete text of the "Targum Yerushalmi" on the Torah. Previously known brief extracts related to this targum had long been known in manuscripts of what is referred to by scholars as the "fragment targums", which are cited in Jastrow's Dictionary under the rubric "YII" and appear in various editions of Mikraot Gedolot interspersed with Targum Yerushalmi (Yonatan) under the rubric "Targum Yerushalmi". Extensive manuscript pages of related material were also discovered in the Cairo Geniza in the 20th Century.
  • Edition in ALHATORAH Mikraot Gedolot

  • The electronic text in the Mikraot Gedolot has been provided by the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon (CAL) project of the Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion. It was originally entered under the guidance of Prof. M. Sokoloff for the preparation of his A Dictionary of Jewish Palestinian Aramaic based on the multi-volume editio-princeps of Prof. A. Diez-Macho (1968ff.) and a photographic edition of the manuscript by Makor Press. Additional marginal or interlinear variants have been added by CAL staff based on the photographs.
