Koren Jerusalem Bible

Artist / Author: Lapin Rabbi Daniel

R 1,420.00
Rabbi Daniel Lapin’s Recommended Hebrew/English Bible. There are many reasons why we especially like this edition. One feature making this Bible so special is its unique appearance. Torah scrolls are hand-written on parchment by a trained and skilled artisan. Each scroll, whether large or small, written this year or hundreds of years ago, follows the same layout. Among other unchangeable rules, certain letters are written larger or smaller than normal, and there is deliberate spacing between specific bodies of text and/or words. This Bible, in addition to having beautiful Hebrew and English typefaces, replicates the writing and paragraph structure found in every authentic Torah scroll. Much of our ancient Jewish wisdom teaching reveals insights that spring from these important features.
