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 features over 60 hours of readings by 13 narrators.

Regarded throughout the English-speaking world as the standard English translation of the Holy Scriptures, the JPS TANAKH has been acclaimed by scholars, rabbis, lay leaders, Jews, and Christians alike. The JPS TANAKH is an entirely original translation of the Holy Scriptures 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 the United States.

Narrated by Michael Bernstein, Theodore Bikel, Bruce Feiler,Tovah Feldshuh, Norma Fire, Kathy Ford, Lisa Kirsch, Harold Kushner, MD Laufer, Elizabeth London, Francie Anne Riley, Jonathan Roumie, and Marciarose Shestack.

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.

    " I love the translation in comparison with other Bibles. It touches the original intent after translation. "

    " Lovely, inspiring, and wonderful as it should be. The one problem is the size of the text - about 6pt. Luckily for me I'm young and nearsighted, but I doubt that my mother could read this easily. "
