The Tanakh is an entirely original translation of the Holy Scriptures (Old Testamant) into contemporary English, based on the Masoretic—the traditional Hebrew text. It is the culmination of three decades of collaboration by academic scholars and rabbis representing the three largest branches of organized Judaism in America.
They drew upon the latest findings in linguistics and archaeology as well as the work of early rabbinic and medieval commentators, grammarians, and philologians. The resulting text is a triumph of literary style and biblical scholarship, unsurpassed in accuracy and clarity.
