TODAY ONLY – Up to 80% Off Koren Books

 

TODAY ONLY – Up to 80% Off Koren Books (Randyjw; December 10, 2019)

 

People sometimes ask for guidance in selecting help to choose Hebrew works of interest. While each person has their own needs, style of learning, and other factors which make them unique, I have often cheered this particular Tanach (Torah, Nevi’im, Ketuvim) by Koren Publishers in Jerusalem. This Tanach was the same set I used to have. And, today only, Koren Publishers is offering up to 80% off many products.

 

Here’s the page linking to the Tanach:

The “Numbers” Map

 

The Numbers Map (Randyjw; June 22, 2019)

 

See the locations of the places mentioned in the “Numbers” portion of the Torah, as presented by Rabbi Tuly Weisz, of the infamous Israel 365 and Breaking Israel News websites, which I love, and link to so very often… (Rabbi Weisz has also recently completed The Israel Bible™):

Avraham’s Journey

 

Avraham’s Journey (Randyjw; June 18, 2019)

 

I was slowly setting out to do, in a way, what Rabbi Tuly Weisz, in his The Israel Bible, has already done. Within this digitally-modern, Google map, you’ll be able to visually review, en masse, location markers for Biblical sites attenuated to the travels of Avraham:
