Item description for The Jewish Study Bible: featuring The Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation (Bible Hebrew) by Michael Fishbane, Adele Berlin & Marc Zvi Brettler...

Overview
Oxford University Press breaks exciting new ground in the field of study Bibles with The Jewish Study Bible . This innovative volume will, for the first time, offer readers of the Hebrew Bible a resource that is specifically tailored to meet their needs. The JSB presents the center of gravity of the Scriptures where Jews experience it--in Torah. It offers readers the fruits of various schools of Jewish traditions of biblical exegesis (rabbinic, medieval, mystical, etc.) and provides them with a wealth of ancillary materials that aid in bringing the ancient text to life. The nearly forty contributors to the work represent the cream of Jewish biblical scholarship from the world over. The JSB uses The Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation, whose name is an acronym formed from the Hebrew initials of the three sections into which the Hebrew Bible is traditionally divided (Torah , Instruction; Nevi'im , Prophets; and Kethubim , Writings). A committee of esteemed biblical scholars and rabbis from the Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Judaism movements produced this modern translation, which dates from 1985. Unlike other English translations based upon such ancient versions as the Septuagint and Vulgate, which emend the Hebrew text, TANAKH is faithful to the original text. Anyone interested in acquiring a fuller understanding of the riches of the Hebrew Bible will profit from reading The Jewish Study Bible .

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jewish Study Bible: featuring The Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation (Bible Hebrew)?

Jewish Study Bible: She Loves It!!!!!  Mar 29, 2007
The person for whom I bought the Jewish Study Bible called a few days ago, after receiving it to say that it was exactly what she wanted. Thanks for being there. I did a very extensive search, without finding a Bible which didn't have the New Testament attached. Your site fit the bill perfectly. Thanks.
 
From a senior BOLLI member at Brandeis (lifelong learning)  Mar 15, 2007
This study bible is exactly what was needed for this study group. The price was unbeatable for a hardcover, and free shipping as well. Delivery
was quick and in perfect condition.
 
Great resource for Old Testament study  Mar 8, 2007
I got the Jewish Study Bible for use during a Christian Bible study of the Old Testament. It was one of the best decisions I've made.

The study notes and commentary from the Jewish perspective have given me a much richer understanding into the Scripture. As with any good study Bible, the notes include background info about the time, place, and events surrounding the text (either from the time it happened or when it was written). It also mentions how certain verses are used today (i.e. Daniel 2:20 is basis of Kaddish prayer).

During in-depth Bible study, simply having different translations of Scripture gives insight into the text. Comparing this version (the TANAKH) to the NIV and the NRSV has been interesting.

The only downside I've found is that some of the words used in the notes section are not every day language so I had to keep a dictionary handy while reading. But the occasional new word did not detract from the knowledge I was gaining.
 
A wonderful Christian resource  Feb 1, 2007
When I teach my Bible study groups, I believe it is important to have a middle eastern Jewish understanding of the scriptures as Jesus knew them. This book is a great resource in my classes.
 
JEWISH STUDY BIBLE  Jan 15, 2007
The Jewish Study Bible has a great amount of background history and study helps.
