The Talmud is the second most important body of writing in Judaism, containing teachings from Palestine and Babylon. It includes the Mishnah (the codification of the oral Torah) and a large body of rabbinical commentary.

Additional commentaries and the code of law and ritual called halakhah were compiled in the latter part of the Middle Ages.
