Hum 110 Gateway to the Study of Classical Jewish Literature
The first page of Mikraot Gedolat, the Rabbinic edition of the Hebrew
Bible. The large letters in the upper right corner are the first words of the
Torah [Bereshit bara Elohim et ha-Shamayim, "in the beginning God created
the heavens"]. The sections surrounding the Bible verse are its Aramaic
translation [to its left] and a series of commentaries from the medieval and
early modern periods.
This page provides links introducing the uninitiated reader to the study of classical Jewish literature:
