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 is an excellent Bible to carry with you or for study. It is a very handy size. The font size is good and there is a large margin for adding your own notes.

      This is an excellent product. Clean straight cut pages. Clear single column print. Love the translation, just what I was looking for. I will purchase another in larger print. 7x5 is a little small for older men like myself
