More of a question than a request:

Am I correct that Accordance does not have one of the more recent updates to the 27-year old "New JPS" translation?

I was reading about two contemporary updates to the JPS, one is The Contemporary Torah (2006, JPS, ISBN 0-8276-0796-2) which is referred to as the CJPS,
and also about the updated edition of the JPS text in the official Reformed commentary, The Torah: A Modern Commentary (2005, Union for Reform Judaism, ISBN 0-8074-0833-2).

At present we do not have these versions, but we do hope to add a broader selection of Jewish translations and commentaries.

The Torah: A Modern Commentary is a fabulous work I'd love to have it in Accordance.
