Another Beautiful Book of faith for Jew or Gentile Jun 2, 2008
I love the illustrations and seeing how the Torah follows the scriptures. I am sure a Jewish famil would love this illustrated copy. I as a gentile have enjoyed it so much seeing the truths of the old testament presented in picture and story format.
A must have for your complete library of faith.
Graven images?! Dec 18, 2007
I like this book, even though naive art isn't my normal cup of tea. I was surprised to see another reviewer complain about 'graven images' since painted isn't the same as graven. Graven means carved, sculpted. These are daubed. Quite different?
Mixed feelings Feb 17, 2007
I have mixed feelings about this book. I like it but I don't. It is large which makes it a good coffee table book. Then again, it is so large that it doesn't fit on any of my shelves (even sideways). I like that it is illustrated but the illustrations aren't that good - and some are downright confusing. I bought it because it had like 4 or 5 stars but now wish I would have chosen something else. Everyone comes to Judaism with a different perception so this may be great for someone else. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it BUUUT I also wouldn't want to steer someone away from it.
What about the commandment against graven images?! Nov 4, 2002
Thou shalt not make any graven image
Included are sidrot and haftarot "weekly readings" Feb 25, 2001
The essential foundation of Judaism is the Torah, known also as the Five Books Of Moses. Included are sidrot and haftarot "weekly readings" and the whole is augmented with Michael Meron's spectacular paintings to showcase quotations drawn from the Hebrew text of the Torah and haftarot portions. The excerpts of the sidrot and its haftarot are taken from the Jewish Publication Society translation. Dr. Ellen Frankel (noted author, scholar, and editor-in-chief of the JPS) provides a brief but informative explanatory essay introduction. The Illustrated Torah is a highly recommended, superbly presented, very welcome addition to personal and synagogue library collections.
