The Commentator's Bible: the JPS Miqra'ot Gedolot - Leviticus


The Commentator's Bible: the JPS Miqra'ot Gedolot - Leviticus
Michael Carasik (editor and translator)

Jewish Publication Society
270 pages
ISBN: 0827608979

The second published but third volume in the still currently being published set of newly edited and translated commentaries in the format of the Miqra'ot Gedolot. The basic text on each page contains a pointed Torah text and the English translation from the original JPS translation (1917) and the New JPS translation (1985). Surrounding this are newly edited and translated commentaries from major commentators: Rashi, Rashbam, Ibn Ezra, Nachmanides. Most pages contain questions from Abarbanel and other selected comments drawn from a wide range of sources (Sforno, Gersonides, Saadia Ga'on, etc.). Where appropriate, explanations of the comments are also provided. This is a large format book, making it easy to read and use.

Only one volume remains in preparation and is eagerly awaited. Though somewhat pricey, these volumes are well presented, easy to use and bring valuable commentaries into wider circulation.
