About the Book

About the Author

JPS / Varda Books ---

The finest Jewish Bible scholars, from all branches of Judaism, labored thirty years to compile the clearest, most accurate translation of the Hebrew Bible into English.

It took another two-and-a-half years to set side-by-side with it the authoritative version of the oldest known complete Hebrew text of the Holy Scriptures.

Finally, after another year-and-a-half of labor, the craftsmen of Varda Books – with the cooperation of the Jewish Publication Society (Philadelphia) and its visionary Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Ellen Frankel, – gave birth November to this truly revolutionary electronic version of "The JPS Hebrew-English Tanakh."

An Excerpt from the Book

Preface to the 1999 Hebrew-English Edition" A court of law relies on witnesses to establish the facts of a case. But for those who seek the “facts” of the original biblical texts, no firsthand witnesses exist. We have only the testimony of various manuscripts, produced hundreds of years after the Bible's books were completed. And even if we had an autograph copy of, say, the Book of Ezra, it would not answer all our questions, for it was created at a time (2400 years ago) when writing ...

An Excerpt from the Book

Reviews

"Simply wonderful!"

-- Prof. David Lieber
Chairman-Emeritus,
University of Judaism, Los Angeles


"Superior translation . . . aesthetically and graphically more pleasing . . . an easier program to use . . . great support. I have other electronic editions of Tanakh, however I prefer to use this one."

-- Rabbi Daniel Shevitz
Congregation Mishkon Tephilo

"It is open on my desktop all the time . . . accurate and attractive Hebrew text, authoritative and highly respected Jewish translation, convenient and easy to use format, great search engine--an unbeatable combination."

-- Rabbi Miles B. Cohen
The Jewish Theological Seminary

But with the passing of the years we have come to appreciate this translation because it makes the Bible make sense and because it is a Bible that we can read and feel directly addressed by because it speaks in the language of our time.

Now the JPS has provided us with a new edition which provides the Hebrew text and the English translation side by side. It has an engaging format that enables readers to move easily from one language to the other.

Scholars will appreciate the hundreds of spelling variants, the modifications in the Hebrew text that take into account different manuscript readings, the six hundred some footnotes to the Hebrew side, and the one thousand three hundred and twenty two ketiv/qere instances (plus two more that have been added for clarity) that are preserved on the Hebrew side in this edition. But for the general reader, these matters are inconspicuous and do not interfere with the smooth flow of the reading.

It belongs on the shelf of every person who wants to study the Bible for the first time or who wants to come to it afresh.

-- Rabbi Jack Riemer,
Book Review

A gorgeous new Bible... real value comes from adding the Hebrew, paired with its translation in a dual column format on each page...a collaboration among eminent Bible scholars representing all perspectives within the Jewish community...following principles of contemporary critical scholarship and sensitivity to the cultural nuances of translation.

-- Star Tribune

"What a wondrous combination-the highly praised JPS English translation of the Bible with the complete Masoretic Hebrew text. Add to this the elegant page design, easily readable type, sewn binding, and fine Bible paper-and you have an extraordinary lasting work."

-- Chaim Potok
