Catalogue Note

Yoma is the fifth tractate in the order Mo'ed. In the Mishnah the tractate is sometimes called by its Hebrew name, Yom ha-Kippurim (Day of Atonement), or briefly, Kippurim. In the Babylonian Talmud, however, it was called Yoma (The Day), or Seder Yoma (Order of the Day), and it may be that its early name was Seder Yom ha-Kippurim (Order of the Day of Atonement). Of the eight chapters contained in the Mishnah, the first seven describe in a dramatic yet simple style the service of the high priest in the Temple on the Day of Atonement. Only the final chapter deals with the laws of the fast. The blank spaces on either side of f. 17 allow for the inclusion of hand-drawn schematic drawings of the Temple which would serve as visual aids and facilitate the reader's comprehension of the text.

Provenance: Tlomackie Street Synagogue, Warsaw (bookplate on front pastedown)
