Publisher's Summary

The JPS TANAKH: The Jewish Bible, audio version, is a recorded version of the JPS TANAKH, the most widely read English translation of the Hebrew, or Jewish, Bible. Produced and recorded for The Jewish Publication Society (JPS) by The Jewish Braille Institute (JBI), this complete, unabridged audio version of the Five Megilloth and Jonah features over two hours of readings by six narrators.These short books of the Bible, each read in connection with a Jewish holy day, constitute a literature unto themselves - a poetic, spiritual, and literary treasure. The recordings in this series include readings of The Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, and Jonah.
Funding for this recording is made possible through the generosity of Aaron Feingold, M.D., in memory of Esther Feingold, who saw life "with a good eye" (Pirke Avot); Dr. Seymour and June Kessler, in memory of Harry and Rose Kessler, remembered with love; and Norman and Edith Weisfeld, in loving memory of Benjamin and Rose Krumholz, and David Weisfeld.
