Since its initial publication in the 1960s, The Koren Jerusalem Bible has been recognized as the most authentic Hebrew/English Tanakh. The Koren Hebrew Tanakh text is accompanied by a superb English translation by biblical and literary scholar Professor Harold Fisch. English text divisions parallel the Hebrew parshiyot, with chapter and verse numbers noted in the margins. Transliterated personal and place names replace the Hellenistic forms used in most Tanakhim (Moshe instead of Moses). The Koren Jerusalem Bible makes the Tanakh accessible in English as it restores the text's original intent. This new edition is a larger format and large type size, and feature a thumb index – like those used in dictionaries – indicates the beginning of each book of the Tanakh to make finding your way quick and easy. Available in both hardcover edition with protective dust jacket, as well as in a flexible leather cover, ideal for gifts or presentations.
