Specifically, a part of the Talmud, consisting of an arrangement of the extant Oral Law, divided into six Orders (sedarim) dealing with seeds, festivals, women, damages, holy things, and purifications.
The Mishnah or Mishna (, "repetition"), from the verb shanah , or "to study and review", also "secondary;" derived from the adj. shani ) is the first major written redaction of the Jewish oral traditions called the "Oral Torah". It is also the first major work of Rabbinic literature.
