The book by Marcus Jastrow is a classic dictionary, being an indispensable source for knowledge on the rabbinical Hebrew and on the rabbinical Aramaic. Jastrow's work complements the dictionaries by Michael Sokoloff on the Jewish Babylonian Aramaic and on the Jewish Palestinian Aramaic. Read full review
