Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Jewish Study Bible encompasses a monumental assembly of critical learning and acumen, representing the achievement of an entire generation of Jewish scholars. The commentaries are not only erudite but purposeful and theologically alert. A heroic undertaking, brilliantly conceived and executed with panache."--Jacob Neusner

"Serious students of Judaism will want to have a copy of this outstanding and surprisingly affordable study Bible, which stands in the tradition of Oxford's great study Bibles."--Publishers Weekly, Religion Bookline

"Another superb holiday gift, especially appropriate for non-Orthodox Jews, is The Jewish Study Bible from Oxford University Press, which finally stands alongside the many verse-by-verse commentaries for Christians. This work also is recommended for serious-minded Christian readers."--Associated Press

    wonderful to use when studying Hebrew Bible (Old Testament)!

    I had a paperback copy of the Tanakh to use and wanted a hardcover. This one is just what I needed. The essays in the back include Inner-biblical Interpretation, The Bible in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Languages of the Bible. The explanations which are beside the verses offer a good study explanation.

    The notes seem wonderful, but my volume is badly misprinted. The problem starts on page 1607, where the back side of the page - instead of being 1608 as expected - is 1656, jumping from Ecclesiastes into Daniel. Then for the next 50-100 pages, the right-hand sides frequently don't match up with the left-hand sides (for example, page 1692 is rendered alongside page 1645). So a large part of the Kethuvim (from Ecclesiastes through Nehemiah) is pretty much unusable.

    Other than that it seems like a great Bible with thoughtful and well-informed notes. I hope it's just my copy that's got the misprint, but given the magnitude of the error, I really can't see giving this more than one star.
