This is the 2003 paperback edition with two columns---Hebrew and English---on each page. It contains prefaces from the 1999 Hebrew-English edition and the 1985 English edition. At the back is a list of the week Torah readings with their accompanying Haftarot followed by the readings for special Shabbatot and holidays.

I do not remember when I bought this copy The Torah, but I have had it for a long time and still enjoy reading it. I do have a traffic ticket in it from 1969, when I worked at the Arkansas Baptist Hospital.

The newest JPS translation of the Tanach has two wonderful forwards explaining the various translations and texts used to verify the translations. The maps in the back are also nice, though I found myself wishing for a more complete map of the Abrahamic period.
Love,
