Product Description

Thanks to these generous donors for making the publication of this book possible: The Friedman French Foundation.

First published 500 years ago as the “Rabbinic Bible,” the biblical commentaries known as the Miqra’ot Gedolot have inspired and educated generations of Hebrew readers. With this edition, the voices of Rashi, Ibn Ezra, Nachmanides, Rashbam, and other medieval commentators come alive once more, speaking in a contemporary English translation annotated and explicated for lay readers.

Each page of The Commentators’ Bible contains several Hebrew verses from the book of Exodus, surrounded by both the 1917 and 1985 JPS translations and new English translations of the major commentators. This large-format volume is beautifully designed for ease of navigation among the many elements on each page, including explanatory notes and selected additional comments from the works of Bekhor Shor, Hizkuni, Abarbanel, Sforno, Gersonides, and others. JPS is pleased to make available for group study and teaching purposes individual parshiyot (weekly Torah readings) from The Commentators’ Bible.

Review

“The JPS  Commentators Bible is one of the most useful resources I now have in my library. It opens the door to the wisdom of the classic commentators to Jewish students of all levels of Hebrew fluency. The translations are fluid and accessible, and this important work represents an invaluable invitation to join the centuries-long conversation of Torah commentary and interpretation.  I eagerly await the completion of the remaining volumes of  The Rubin JPS Miqra’ot Gedolot.”—Rabbi Dan Levin (Temple Beth El, Boca Raton, Florida)

“Anyone who is unfamiliar with medieval commentary, or who is unable to study the commentators in the original Hebrew, will find The Commentators’ Bible a worthy addition to their book shelves. Carasik has done a real service making this material available.”— The Reporter

“The importance of this volume cannot be overestimated—for the first time, we have a responsible translation of the miqra’ot gedolot . . . that is accessible to those without great facility in Hebrew.”— Jbooks.com
