The Koren First Edition Tanakh: A Three Volume Hebrew Bible limited to only 300 copies, all numbered. This copy is number 52 of the first edition of the Koren Hebrew Bible, one of the first 300 copies printed, all numbered, and printed in high quality in a fine edition.First published in 1962, The Koren Tanakh was the first fully Jewish Bible produced in nearly 500 years. Famed Israeli typographer Eliyahu Koren designed the Tanakh, including a new typeface, which became its trademark. The utmost accuracy of vowels, cantillation signs and accentuation, combined with its graphic beauty, made The Koren Tanakh the standard Bible in synagogues, schools, and homes. Upon receiving the first copy of the Koren Tanakh, the Chairman of the Israeli Knesset announced that all Israel’s presidents would be sworn in on it. A small number of copies remain from the first print. This limited edition, three-volume set is a collector’s item.Koren Publishers Jerusalem was established in 1962 with the aim of publishing the first fully Jewish Bible in nearly 500 years. With its textual accuracy and innovative graphic design, The Koren Bible quickly became the international standard. In 1981, Koren Publishers introduced The Koren Siddur (Prayerbook), which can be found in nearly every synagogue in Israel. Since then, it has published various editions of the Bible, siddur and other Jewish texts in Hebrew, English and other languages.
