Reviews - What do customers think about JPS Hebrew-English Tanakh: Pocket Edition?
Just Right May 2, 2008
This Tanach is just right for my purposes. It contains the Hebrew text and a Jewish translation into English. The Torah portion is divided up into the traditional Parshiot with running heads. I use it for reference when studying Talmud or other texts. It's compact enough to be portable, but set in clear and legible typefaces.
Best English Translation with almost flawless Hebrew Dec 17, 2007
Best English Translation with almost flawless Hebrew and fits neatly into a big coat pocket.
Pocket tanaka Dec 8, 2007
Type much too small for mature eyes. If you are price conscious and have good eyes--great deal
JPS Tanakh Nov 11, 2007
All I suggest is this: If you have a difficult time reading very small text, DO NOT BUY THIS. Also, I was a bit put off by the bar-code printed in the inner cover. Other than that, this is a fine translation, the book is well made.
Beautiful little book Sep 28, 2007
This is a lovely book... beuatifully put together, a pleasure to hold and read, and with a limpid English translation. I had never seen a Jewish version of the scriptures before and this is a revelation. Also, coming from Europe and buying this while on vacation in the US, I found the price amazingly low
