Onkelos On the Torah - Understanding the Bible Text
Onkelos On the Torah - Understanding the Bible Text
 
Israel Drazin, Stanley M. Wagner

Publisher: Gefen

The legendary Onkelos translated the Hebrew Bible into Aramaic similar to that spoken by the population of Israel around 2000 years ago.

This is the only rabbinically authorized translation of the Bible text in Aramaic.

It contains the Hebrew Massoretic text, a vocalized text of Onkelos and Rashi, Haphtarot in Hebrew with an English translation from the Aramaic Targumim, a scholarly appendix, and a  - Beyond the Text -  explanation of biblical themes.

The Book of Exodus has already been published and the remaining volumes will be published in yearly intervals.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Dr. Drazin received a number of rabbinic ordinations, and earned a B.A. in theology, an M.Ed. in Psychology, an M.A. in Hebrew literature, a J.D. in law and a Ph.D. in Aramaic literature.
