The Jewish Publication Society

Since 1888 the mission of The Jewish Publication Society has been to enhance Jewish literacy and self-understanding with the JPS TANAKH, the most widely read English translation of the Hebrew Bible, Bible commentaries, and hundreds of classic books about Jewish history and thought. As the oldest not-for-profit and non-denominational Jewish publisher in the U.S., JPS publishes works representing the highest levels of scholarship, written in a popular manner. Indeed, “accessible scholarship” remains JPS’s unique niche. Our authors, donors, and readers represent the entire spectrum of the Jewish community.
