Bibles we love!
The Bible is a crazy text, written in an old language! This means that a great Bible translation and commentary are critical to help us understand this incredible, inspiring text.
Two options that we love are:
The Torah: A Women’s Commentary, edited by Tamara Cohn-Eskenazi and Andrea Weiss (our teacher!). This volume includes Hebrew and English, and amazing poetic and academic feminist commentary.
The Contemporary Torah, published by JPS. This all-English volume is gender sensitive!
If you’re looking for the entire Tanach in English, we like:
The Jewish Study Bible. Hyper academic commentary!
Happy learning, and send us a message if we can help you find more resources!
