Reviews - What do customers think about Tanach: The Stone, Student Size Black?
Excellent book Sep 30, 2008
Very clear Hebrew, great size and very clear to read. The English translation is very good,I like comparing the translation to other Bible translations. The translations gives some different perspectives. The Tenach comes with the Hebrew calendar readings for Bible study. It also has a lot of Hebrew insight.
Better than expected ! Sep 19, 2008
How often can you say something was better than expected ? Not often enough. But my experience here really has been!
I even had to return 1 book that I ordered by mistake and they credited my account easily.

Great Sep 8, 2008
I purchased this book because my Rabbi told me this was the most accurate of versions. I do enjoy the tone of the narrator and the way the writtings flow.
A wonderful help Aug 23, 2008
This book provides the student of the Torah, and bible in general, an easy to read and accurate translation.
Tanach: Exceptional! May 16, 2008
The Tanach (Old Testament in both Hebrew and literal English translation), Stone Edition, makes the Jewish scriptures even more useable with the added feature of commentary from various scholars. Its compact size allows for conservation of space and ease of use. While visiting a worship service at a local synagogue shortly after this purchase, my assistant and I showed the rabbi a Tanach. Before we could ask his opinion, he said, "Oh, excellent! Superb!" I couldn't say it any better. For those interested in in-depth study, but who are not proficient in Hebrew, the Tanach will be a marvelous aid. Highly recommended.
