About This Text
“Tanchuma Buber” refers to a version of Midrash Tanchuma published by Solomon Buber in 1885, based primarily on a manuscript that he discovered. Buber claimed that this version was the earliest extant midrash, though later scholars largely disputed that claim. Buber’s version differs significantly from the printed Tanchuma on the books of Genesis and Exodus, but his version of midrash on Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy largely resembles the printed version.
Composed: Talmudic Israel/Babylon, c.150 - c.750 CE
