“This translation of Tanakh, the Holy Scriptures, produced by the Jewish Publication Society, was made directly from the traditional Hebrew text into the idiom  of modern English. It represents the collaboration of academic scholars with rabbis from the three largest branches of organized Jewish religious life in America. Begun in 1955, the ongoing translation was published in three main stages: The Torah in 1962, The Prophets (Nevi’im) in 1978, and The Writings (Kethuvim) in 1982.  These three volumes, with revisions, are now brought together in a complete English Tanakh (Torah-Nevi’im-Kethuvim), the latest link in the chain of Jewish Bible translations.” Preface to the 1985 English Edition.
