Since its initial publication in the 1960s, The Koren Tanakh 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 ted in the margins. Transliterated personal and place names replace the Hellenistic forms used in most Tanakhim (Moshe instead of Moses). The Koren Tanakh makes the Tanakh accessible in English as it restores the text's original intent.Thumbing through the Tanakh is a pleasure with the new Ma'alot edition of the Koren Hebrew/English Tanakh. New typesetting sharpens the text, and a thumb index - available for the first time - makes finding your way quick and easy. This gilt edged leather like Tanakh makes a beautiful gift for a special occasion.
