Nezikin

These are the individual tractates of Nezikin, the forth order of the Mishna. These descriptions are not meant as Halachic decisions. Please consult an Orthodox Rabbi for specific information.

  • Bava Kama - Civil law (damages) and (non-capital) criminal law (i.e. theft).
  • Bava Metziah - Business law.
  • Bava Basra - Property law.
  • Sanhedrin - The set up of the Jewish court system and criminal (capital) law.
  • Makos - Non capital punishments (i.e. whippings).
  • Shevuous - The laws of oaths.
  • Edios - Various laws from across the board... connected by their having been brought as "testimony" in various Yeshivas (Talmudic academies).
  • Avoda Zara - Laws of idol worship (a big no-no).
  • Horiyos (Horiyot) - the laws governing Judaism's "ruling class." - what happens to a high court, high priest or king who issues a legal ruling in error or who sins. It's interesting that the Torah seems to focus primarily on creating and maintaining perfect and moral government, rather than perpetuating its power
  • Avos - The famous "Ethics of the Fathers" - religious advice.
