Item description for Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia: Prepared According to the Vocalization, Accents, and Masora of Aaron Ben Moses Ben Asher on the Leningrad Codex (Hebrew Edition) by Dotan...
The most accurate edition of the Leningrad Codex in print, the "Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia" presents a thoroughly revised, reset, and redesigned edition of the Hebrew Bible meticulously prepared by renowned masoretic scholar Aron Dotan. The "BHL" includes features that suit it for research, classroom, and liturgical use. Scholars will find this a welcome edition of the Leningrad Codex, the oldest complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible, whose text and layout it precisely follows. A foreword and four appendices provide the researcher with important details and distinctions about the codex. In addition to being a scientific edition, it was originally commissioned in Israel to follow the necessary adaptations that qualify it for Jewish liturgical use, such as divisions into weekly portions and their subdivisions for synagogue reading.

Reviews - What do customers think about Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia: Prepared According to the Vocalization, Accents, and Masora of Aaron Ben Moses Ben Asher on the Leningrad Codex (Hebrew Edition)?
BHL Jan 17, 2007
This text is the one I have on my desk for reading and reference. I like the style of the print, it is clear and easy to read. It should be said here that the author's intent is to provide a text "...suitable for Jewish ritual use as well" as providing an accurate Bible. This "intent" colors the text somewhat as He was willing to be "occasionally obliged to deviate from it, ( the Leningrad Codex ), for the sake of customs and conventions that have become rooted since the time the manuscript was written." This should not worry the reader, however. It is appearent that Aron Dotan has given us the best usable Bible in the Ben Asher tradition we have to date, and has challenged those of the BHQ committee to surpass his edition, (p.X). He is also willing to say that there are limitations to his text and as his forward indicates, he has given us his best effort. I would give this a 5 star rating.
