Chapters of the Babylonian Talmud are often referred to by their
opening words. To determine the tractate and chapter number of a
chapter identified only by its title, click on the Hebrew letter which
begins the name of the chapter, and then on the name itself. This will
bring up the Hebrew name of the chapter in both Hebrew script and
romanized form as well as the established name of the tractate and the
number of the chapter.
