    DescriptionOxford 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. Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist Jews, professors, students, rabbis: indeed, anyone interested in acquiring a fuller understanding of the riches of the Hebrew Bible will profit from reading The Jewish Study Bible.

    Review quote
    The Jewish Study Bible deserves a place on the shelves of every serious student of the Bible, Jewish or not. John Barton, Times Literary Supplement On every count The Jewish Study Bible is a pre-eminent example of the genre. Jewish or Christian Bible readers who want to know what is now believed about the formation and meaning of the Bible by mainstream scholars in both faiths will find it a highly reliable guide, while its exploration of the treatment of the Bible in Jewish tradition gives access to information very difficult for the non-specialist to come by in any other way. Some forty Jewish scholars ... have produced a masterpiece. John Barton, Times Literary Supplement
