No Hebrew? Not even a problem, here. These three links fall under the aegis of Rabbi Naphtali “Tuly” Weisz, an Orthodox Rabbi who combines all aspects of Judaism (religion, culture, language, land, etc.) into a neat package. The portion of Torah he sends is transliterated phonetically into English in the proper pronunciations and understandings. He now has a complete Bible transliterated this way and offers free Bible studies, where you can choose the books from which you would like to learn, in order to personalize your own teaching. His emails are just the right amount of information and don’t overwhelm.

Fisch, Harold (ed.); English text. The Koren Jerusalem Bible Set (Compact). ©2001 Koren Publishers Jerusalem Ltd.; Jerusalem, Israel.
This set is called, in Hebrew, a “Tanakh”. It derives its name from the three-letter acronym formed by the first letter of each of its three books: Torah, Nevi’im and Ketuvim, or “T-N-K”. Innovations have been introduced which add organizational efficiencies to the text, while keeping within the accepted standards for scriveners. Numbers have been introduced into the margins to denote the weekly Torah portion to be read. The setting has also adopted, in its inner margins, the numbers used for the Gentile chapter assignations. Hebrew and Aramaic are the ancient languages used within these books. The first book is the Torah, with its five books of Moses. Their chapters in Hebrew and English appellations are: 1) B’reishit/Genesis; 2) Shemot/Exodus; 3) Vayikra/Leviticus; 4) Bamidbar/Numbers; 5) D’varim/Deuteronomy.
