I have a question about the Jewish Bible

I got started studying about the Jewish religion. I am new to this, so I don't know but very little. I bought me a Tanach, it is in English on one side and on the other it is in Hebrew. I have learned that there are Jews and there are Messianic Jews. But, I am looking to buy a complete Bible, a book or series of books that contain ALL the books of the Jewish Bible. I hope I am conveying this correctly. I know that there are books called the Tanach, Chumash, and so forth. I have gone to artscrol.com but don't know what the name of the book I am looking for is. I sure hope you can help me. I would ask my friends, but thought I would give you guys a try first. Thanks.

Hi Alexis! You might want to ask someone on the Jewish Life board; http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-rljewish I know very little about Judaism. Do you have a synagogue near you? Maybe your local rabbi could help you too.

Good luck with you study and feel free to share what you've learned with US!

Hey there Alexis! I found a couple of things for you on amazon.com but I agree with Peni that you should check out the Jewish board.

Here is the "Complete Jewish Bible"

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/9653590197/qid=1048862150/sr=2-3/ref=sr_2_3/102-8584124-3708117

"Jewish Literacy: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People and Its History"

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0688085067/qid=1048862150/sr=1-4/ref=sr_1_4/102-8584124-3708117?v=glance&s=books

Hope this helps! Glad to have you here and hope to hear more from you! :-)

Thanks for the response about the Jewish Bible. I went to the amazon site and was also able to have a few questions answered. Also, thanks for the referral to the other board! Have a good weekend!
