Overview

This original humash contains all the sidrot and haftarot illustrated in a bold, new way. Michal Meron has worked four years on this project, and the long-awaited results are presented in this artistic book. What identifies Michal's work in particular are the bold colors she uses and the important part that Hebrew texts and lettering play in her pictures. Each sidrot and haftarot has been illustrated in beautiful full color by Memo in the "nave style". Through an arrangement with The Studio in Old Jaffa-a gallery renowned for its collection of mystical art and illustrated literature-The Jewish Publication Society is proud to offer The Illustrated Torah, the perfect gift to honor the Jewish spiritual tradition and to celebrate every joyous occasion.

Editorial Reviews

The essential foundation of Judaism is the Torah, known also as the Five Books Of Moses. Included are sidrot and haftarot "weekly readings" and the whole is augmented with Michael Meron's spectacular paintings to showcase quotations drawn from the Hebrew text of the Torah and haftarot portions. The excerpts of the sidrot and its haftarot are taken from the Jewish Publication Society translation. Dr. Ellen Frankel (noted author, scholar, and editorinchief of the JPS) provides a brief but informative explanatory essay introduction. The Illustrated Torah is a highly recommended, superbly presented, very welcome addition to personal and synagogue library collections.
