Does your busy schedule prevent you from studying the Jewish law for the requisite five hours per day? Do you find yourself wondering—and, inexplicably, failing to remember—what Mani II’s position on dealing with drought is? Have you ever been bored on the subway? Then may we suggest iTalmud, the mishnaic iPhone application. The whole Talmud, with multiple search functions, in the palm of your hand—for only $19.99.

All kidding aside, from the looks of it, the app does a superb job recreating those funky, text-filled pages. In fact, we can’t wait to see what it looks like on Apple’s forthcoming device-which-may-or-may-not-be-called-the-iTablet.
