We offer the JPS Jewish 1917, the first translation of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) into English.

In the early nineteenth century, an English translation of the Bible didnt exist and most American Jews couldnt read the Sacred Scriptures because they were not lettered in Hebrew.

A committee made up of scholars of the three major Jewish institutions began to translate the Old Testament of the Bible.

The aim was to create a new Bible in the best English possible and without all un-Jewish and anti-Jewish phrases, expressions, and usages. They wanted to introduce a traditional Jewish interpretation to reflect Jewish feeling, law, faith and tradition.

This translation have become the most popular English translation of the Hebrew Bible.
