Oxford University Press breaks exciting new
ground in the field of study Bibles with The Jewish Study Bible
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
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
The Jewish Study Bible features: - Section and book introductions that deliver insights into the background, structure, and meaning of the text- Running commentary beside the biblical text that provides in-depth theological interpretation, from the Jewish perspective- 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 Scripture readings; a glossary of technical terms; an index to all the study materials- Full color Oxford Bible Maps, with index
