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.

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.

KIER8, December 31, 2008 (view all comments by KIER8)
It is easy to see why Oxford University Press' "Jewish Study Bible" won a National Jewish Book Award. With the famed Jewish Publication Society translation of the Hebrew Bible as its base, the editors (Adele Berlin, Professor of Bible, University of Maryland; Marc Z. Brettler, Professor of Biblical Studies, Brandeis University; and Michael Fishbane, Professor of Jewish Studies, Univesity of Chicago) have contributed scholarly commentary to each biblical book and essays on a wide variety of biblical and Jewish topics that are geared to the college educated non-Orthodox reader. It includes maps, charts, and glossary.
