NO OF PAGES: 192 SUB CAT I: Bible SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: Of the prophetic books of the Bible, the Neviim, none has been so popular and held in such high esteem as the Book of Isaiah. Many of the halftaroth (the readings form the Prophets at the conclusion of the Torah reading in the synagogue on Sabbaths and holidays) were drawn from Isaiah, especially those that speak words of comfort and describe Israel's glorious future. Even the halftarah for Yom Kippur, which describes what a fast day should be like in order to be acceptable, was taken from the latter half of Isaiah's book. This popularity is well deserved. . . . In view of this, the Jewish Publication Society has decided to issue the Book of Isaiah in a separate volume as a further installment in the new translation of the Bible which the Society is sponsoring. The translation of Isaiah was done by the same committee of scholars that produced The Torah some years ago . . . .NOTES: Donated by Barb Kase. SUBTITLE: A New Translation, illustrated by Chaim Gross
