Description: The Koren Chumash is a Hebrew/English edition of the Five Books of Moses and other Biblical scriptures read in synagogues throughout the year. The Chumash exemplifies the renowned Koren Publishers Jerusalem's tradition of textual accuracy and legibility. An English translation by Biblical and literary scholar Professor Harold Fisch that retains the sound and rhythm of the Hebrew. The humash includes the Torah, Haftarot, Megillot, and Tehillim. An elegant, pure-text Humash, printed on bible paper and bound in companion style to The Koren Sacks and Talpiot Siddurim.
The Koren edition of the Humash with Haftarot represents a welcome and original attempt to bridge the gap between the Hebrew and usual English versions by introducing much of the flavor of the original into the translation. The use of transliterated Hebrew names is a marked contribution towards retaining this specifically Jewish tone of the literary bedrock of Judaism.
