    מסכת

    Greetings

    I gather that מסכת means “tractate”, but does it have other meanings too, please? If so, what?

    One of my dictionaries says “web”, but what kind of web? A spider’s?

    What root does the word come from?

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    See here and here regarding the meaning. Strong's H4545 regarding the root.
