Also known as the Jewish Family Bible, the text is that of the JPS edition of 1917. (See A New Translation) It is a large white book with the text on each page in three columns.
It includes a section “The Twelve Tribes of Israel,” which states the blessings to the sons of Jacob as recorded in Genesis 49:1-27 and shows twelve pictures of the stain-glass windows of the synagogue at the Hebrew University Medical Centre in Ein Karem. There is also a section “Maps of the Lands of the Holy Scriptures.” There is another section “Our Family Record.” All three sections are on thick, glossy paper within the text. At the end are three other sections: (1) “Encyclopedic Dictionary of the Holy Scriptures;” (2) “Holidays and Their Meanings;” and (3) Chronology of the Holy Scriptures.”
Genesis 1: 1, 2
In the beginning God creaed the heaven and the earth. Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters.
