This paper presents our project, The Jerusalem Talmud Digital Critical Edition. The edition consists of a reconstruction of the original Talmudic text, along with direct and indirect textual witnesses - mostly of European origin, complete with a bibliography and a short commentary. This is the first full digital critical edition of any Talmudic text; the existing digital editions in this field to date are either not critical or incomplete, and the critical editions are not digital.
