Publisher Comments:

The Jewish Study Bible is a one-volume resource tailored especially for the needs of students of the Hebrew Bible. Nearly forty scholars worldwide contributed to the translation and interpretation of the Jewish Study Bible, representing the best of Jewish biblical scholarship available today. A committee of highly-respected biblical scholars and rabbis from the Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform Judaism movements produced this modern translation.

No knowledge of Hebrew is required for one to make use of this unique volume. The Jewish Study Bible uses The Jewish Publication Society TANAKH Translation.

Since its publication, the Jewish Study Bible has become one of the most popular volumes in Oxford's celebrated line of bibles. The quality of scholarship, easy-to-navigate format, and vibrant supplementary features bring the ancient text to life.

* Informative essays that address a wide variety of topics relating to Judaism's use and interpretation of the Bible through the ages.

* In-text tables, maps, and charts.

* Tables of weights and measures.

* Verse and chapter differences.

* Table of Scriptural Readings.

* Glossary of technical terms.

* An index to all the study materials.

* Full color New Oxford Bible Maps, with index.

Synopsis:

The Jewish Study Bible 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. No knowledge of Hebrew is required for one to make use of this unique volume.

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.

Anyone interested in acquiring a fuller understanding of the riches of the Bible will profit from reading The Jewish Study Bible.

KIER8, August 21, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
A Christian or a Jew who is searching for a good one volume Jewish translation of and commentary on the entire Holy Scriptures [Old Testament] should buy the Oxford University Press' "The Jewish Study Bible" . This excellent edition uses the Jewish Publication Society's new translation of the Masortic text. Professors Adele Berlin, Mark Zvi Brettler, and Michael Fishbane have produced a erudite work that is geared to the intelligent layperson. Masterfully, they wrote an introduction and preface to each biblical book and edited the commentaries that were prepared by scholars from around the world - all in just 2,208 pages.
