The Mishnah is the primary book of oral law, and of great importance in our history. What is special about this particular commentary is its use of accumulated knowledge and its integration of a research method with a traditional approach to the text. The sources are primarily rabbinic literature throughout the ages, early commentaries and familiarity with the historical background that underpins rabbinic literature. The Mishnah was written against the backdrop of the land of Israel and the social and economic circumstances facing the people and their leaders. Today we have tools that allow the reconstruction of the social background of the Mishnah, and thus the ability to better understand the world of halakhic minutae. The Mishnah was a cornerstone in building the halakhah in all its fullness, and today, when we have been privileged to return to Israel and to explore it, we also have the duty to review our understanding of the Mishnah.

Masechet Hala
Tractate Hala, as its name implies, deals with the mitzvah of separating hala. It is not one of the mitzvot that is contingent on living in Israel, and it is observed both in Israel and the Diaspora.
Separating hala is done at the time of the preparation of the dough, making it a mitzvah that falls mainly on the woman, as she is the one who was traditionally and historically responsible for food preparation. Unlike other mitzvot, this mitzvah is observed in its original form both in Israel and the Diaspora.
This volume completes Seder Zraim in the Mishnat Eretz Israel series, and contains a comprehensive subject index of the whole Seder. It also includes an appendix that deals with agriculture in Israel, which summarizes the practical background of the mitzvot that are observed only in Israel.
