Chapter Summary

In his Literaturgeschichte der synagogalen Poesie, L. Zunz listed a number of Aramaic passages in the festival liturgy that have their origin in the targumic toseftot. Most prominent in this listing are the many toseftot to the Song of the Sea, which is part of the Torah reading for the Seventh Day of Passover, the traditional date of the Crossing of the Sea. The tosefta is just one of the many toseftot that have been included in the targumim to the Pentateuch. These compositions appear in many versions in the various targumic and midrashic contexts. They are composite constructions of several originally independent midrashim, in which each component has many variants. In our instance, MS Parma, de-Rossi 2887, represents the fullest version of the targumic tosefta to Exod 15:2. On the other hand, some of its elements have been shown to be secondary variants of midrashim to other Biblical verses.
