Torah - the First Jewish Book

Looking for a good Chumash/Pentateuch/Tanach/Jewish Bible?

Needless to say, Jewish books start with the Torah. Torah, in the traditional world, refers both to the written Torah, and also to the oral Torah, which includes commentary and other exegesis on the written Torah. Talmud? That's Torah. Chassidic teachings from the last couple of centuries? Depending on your outlook, also Torah. And so on.

Tanakh, Chumash, and Pentateuch

The Jewish Bible is known in Hebrew by the acronym Tanakh (Torah, Neviim, Ketuvim - Torah, Prophets, Writings). The first five books in a printed edition are called Chumash. (In English, this is usually rendered as Pentateuch, an unwieldy name from Greek.) Most commentaries focus on the Torah, and there are many fine editions from Artscroll, JPS, and other publishers.

Okay, class, time for review: want a book with the weekly Torah portions and lots of commentary? That would be a Chumash. Want the entire Hebrew Bible, not just the first five books? That's a Tanakh.

New! Jewish Bible Software

Here are computer programs and other goodies to help you learn Torah (with or without Rashi), and even gematria (numerology) and Bible codes, courtesy of our affiliate jewishsoftware.com. Want to learn how to chant Torah or Haftarah? Have a look at our Bar Mitzvah page.

Traditional Torah Commentaries

Here are traditional Jewish Bibles and Torah commentaries - Chumashim and Tanakhim - followed by other books on the Bible. Most are beautiful editions, suitable for very lasting gifts to yourself or someone else. You can find an entire series - well, actually, several series - of Bibles from Artscroll with traditional commentaries, as well as Bibles from other publishers. If you're looking for a complete set with commentary, consider the Soncino Books of the Bible. You also can't go wrong with the one-volume Hertz Pentateuch, a standard in many synagogues. The Hertz Chumash includes the haftarot for each week as well.
