Publisher's summary

The JPS TANAKH: The Jewish Bible, audio version, is a recorded version of the JPS TANAKH, the most widely read English translation of the Hebrew, or Jewish, Bible. Produced and recorded for The Jewish Publication Society (JPS) by The Jewish Braille Institute (JBI), this complete, unabridged audio version of the Torah features over 14 hours of readings by seven narrators. The Torah is the essence of Jewish tradition; it inspires each successive generation. The current JPS translation, based on classical and modern sources, is acclaimed for its fidelity to the ancient Hebrew.

Funding for this recording is made possible through the generosity of Aaron Feingold, M.D., in memory of Esther Feingold, who saw life "with a good eye" (Pirke Avot); Dr. Seymour and June Kessler, in memory of Harry and Rose Kessler, remembered with love; and Norman and Edith Weisfeld, in loving memory of Benjamin and Rose Krumholz, and David Weisfeld.

No chapters Not good must do better

When I read the Bible or listen I like to know where I am in the story. This does not have any chapters so you can’t go back and relisten because you never know where your at. Not good!

Wonderful!

Great introduction to the Jewish Bible! The Torah provides a good understanding to the meanings and pronunciations of certain words and names of biblical leaders and historic sites. I'll be reading this quite often. Praise YHWH!

Great recording but terrible plot

Thanks to the production team, it's well done. Didn't like the story though, this Lord guy is kinda awful. Also surprised the people didn't realize Moses was making him up. Funny myth, there's a lot of animal blood sacrifice and everyone's 200 years old. Silly, but a fun read.
