Sifre Numbers: Update

An earlier post on Sifre Numbers (here) stated that no complete English translation of the work exists. In fact, Jacob Neusner did publish a translation of all 161 pisqa’ot of Sifre Numbers in the four-part volume 12 of his The Components of the Rabbinic Documents: From the Whole to the Parts (Neusner 1998). Part 1 includes an introduction and pisqa’ot 1–84; part 2 offers a translation of pisqa’ot 85–122; part 3 comprises pisqa’ot 123–161; and part 4 presents Neusner’s topical and methodological outline of the entire work.

Thanks to Professor Gregg E. Gardner of the University of British Columbia for alerting us to this work.
