I first became aware of jps when I came across the excellent Jewish study bible in a book shop. Having valued their translation and the insights in the study bible notes and essays, I bought this set. Both this set and the Torah a modern commentary have proved invaluable when researching the Torah. they both compliment each other and I wouldn’t want to be without either. The additional essays provided in this set bring the relevance of works like Leviticus into the modern day.

This set really are an excellent addition to a library and are very well structured. They provide a different perspective and also compliment my other commentaries such as the wbc.

In an ideal world with a limitless budget, I would purchase all 12 of the jps commentaries as they are refreshing and very readable.
