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 *
This is an essential acquisition for every library and an indispensable addition for every Jewish home. It has been needed for a long time. * Nahum M. Sarna, Judaica, Florida Atlantic University *
The Jewish Study Bible is a major accomplishment. It provides accessible essays from the full gamut of Jewish scholarship, and a running commentary that draws liberally from both traditional and scientific perspectives.'' * Lawrence A. Hoffman, Liturgy, Worship and Ritual, Hebrew Union College *
