Product Description

In this appropriate companion to the JPS Tanakh, David Mandel has undertaken the massive task of cataloging every character in the Hebrew Bible. From Aaron to Zurishaddai, this comprehensive biographical dictionary gives readers the chance to get up close and personal with everyone named in the Bible including its patriarchs, matriarchs, and prophets, warriors and peacemakers, holy men and sinners, heroes and villains.

David Mandel was born in Lima, Peru, where his parents fled during the Holocaust. He studied at the University of Pennsylvania under Bible scholar Moshe Greenberg, and moved to Israel in 1970, where he founded Computronic Corporation, an Israeli software development company that specializes in biblical software. For his writing of Who's Who in the Jewish Bible, he has combined years of extensive personal research with his computer savvy and love for the Bible.
