Exquisitely Illuminated Hebrew & English
Edited by David Arnon
Illustrated by: Raymond Cintas
This Torah is dedicated to the revival of Hebrew manuscript illumination, the ancient cultural tradition, which has been active for more than a thousand years. It features the complete text of the Hebrew Bible (including diacritical punctuation) accompanied by illustrations, paintings, and works of art spanning the ages, as well as a comprehensive introduction. The Torah is printed on fine paper, in full color, with gold ornamentation and lacquer finishing, and cut with a unique technique – an original invention of the Matan Arts publishing house – allowing the shape of the opened book to resemble the two Tablets of the Covenant.
This Torah represents the glorious 3,500 year-old cultural roots of the People of Israel, and highlights the adherence to quality in design and production witnessed in Israel today. With its distinctive form and precise design, combining works of art hundreds and even thousands of years old and from all over the world, this Torah beautifies and enhances the Sabbath and holiday table, as well as the family bookshelf.
Includes the complete Chumash – the 5 Books of Moses in English (JPS translation) and vowelized Hebrew in columns on the same page. The embossed leatherette cover is accented with gold leaf. Printed in Israel.(208 Pages)
