A portion of the Talmud containing commentary on the Mishnah. See Mishnah . The word Gemara (Aramaic, “to learn”) refers specifically to the discussions on the Mishna conducted in the rabbinic academies of ancient Palestine and Babylon. The Mishna and Gemara combined comprise the Talmud. Most of the Gemara is written in Aramaic. Two Gemaras exist, the Palestinian and the Babylonian.
