The Talmud: Next Comes the Hyperlinks

«But now that breach has been filled, or so claims the publisher of HaMafteach, or the Key, a guide to the Talmud, available in English and Hebrew. It was compiled not by a white-bearded sage, but by a courtly, clean-shaven, tennis-playing immigration lawyer from the Bronx.»

And barely a mention in the article of the Soncino Talmud's Index volume which, while not as glossy and sexy as this new book, is essentially the same thing.

You mean like http://he.wikisource.org/wiki/%D7%AA%D7%9C%D7%9E%D7%95%D7%93_%D7%91%D7%91%D7%9C%D7%99 ?

Note how on Berakhos 2a, the word "seifa" takes you to the subsequent mishnah being quoted.
