For many years, travelers have been asking for a smaller, lighter, edition of the Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud. Finally - it's here! Every word of the full-size edition is here, but on a compact 7 x 10" page size lighter, with thinner paper.
Learning is everywhere when you are at home or on the road. So now, in addition to your full-size Gemara at home, you can now have a travel Gemara for times when you need something more portable for the road.
So if you want the advantages of the full-size edition, you'll still have it. But if you're a traveler who needs a smaller size or your budget is tight, the blatt Gemara can still be yours, and you can take it with you.
