Product Description

Regarded throughout the English-speaking world as the standard English translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, the Jewish Publication Society's Tanakh has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike.

The JPS Tanakh is an entirely original translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into contemporary English, based on the Masoretic (the traditional Hebrew) text. It is the culmination of three decades of collaboration by academic scholars and rabbis, representing the three largest branches of organized Judaism in the United States.

Not since the third century b.c.e., when 72 elders of the tribes of Israel created the Greek translation of Hebrew Scriptures known as the Septuagint has such a broad-based committee of Jewish scholars produced a major Bible translation.

In executing this monumental task, the translators made use of the entire range of biblical interpretation, ancient and modern, Jewish and non-Jewish. They drew upon the latest findings in linguistics and archaeology, as well as the work of early rabbinic and medieval commentators, grammarians, and philologians. The resulting text is a triumph of literary style and biblical scholarship, unsurpassed in accuracy and clarity.

    This presentation volume is the ideal gift Bible for a bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, confirmation, or graduation. The inside text is identical to the other editions but the cover looks and feels like leather and is more formal than the other editions. Each Bible comes in a white box with printed cover, suitable for giftwrapping or giving as is. This lovely TANAKH will become a treasured keepsake.
