Oxford 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.
