Welcome to JPS. We are the oldest publisher of Jewish books in the United States. Our roots go back to before the Civil War, and our charter to 1888 in Philadelphia. Our legacy includes two acclaimed translations of the Hebrew Bible (the JPS TANAKH), esteemed biblical commentary, and over 120 years of scholarly and popular works of history, philosophy, and literature that have stood the test of time.

We are old, but young at heart. Our publishing program includes path-breaking new works for the study of the Bible in the 21st century. A growing number of our volumes are now available as e-books. Our mission has always been to enhance Jewish literacy through the publication of great books, and we are doing so now at the dawn of the digital age.

A girl who grew up in a concentration camp draws a picture of "home" while living in a residence for disturbed children, 1948
This photograph was taken by David Seymour in a home for emotionally disturbed children located in Warsaw, 1948. There are a few versions of this image, but most of the captions (including one at the War/Photography Exhibit currently on view at the Brooklyn Museum) mention that the subject grew up inside a concentration camp. There’s little information about the girl’s identity, her name was Tereszka, a diminutive version of Teresa. Her eyes are piercing, like a window to her soul. Not the eyes of an innocent youth.

The Temple in Jerusalem, built on the site of Jacob’s famous dream of a ladder connecting heaven and earth, was understood to be a portal between God and humanity. Like no other place on earth, this specific spot is where heaven and earth are supposed to reach out and greet each other.Yet following the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in AD70, the Jewish people experienced nearly 2,000 years of exile from this holy place. And the idea of Jerusalem was kept alive in the constant telling and retelling. Which is why the very idea of being Jewish is inseparable from a yearning and a homesickness for the city of Jerusalem.At the heart of the traditional Jewish wedding, for example, is the breaking of a glass to symbolise the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple and the making of a promise, taken from the same rivers-of-Babylon psalm, 137: “If I forget thee O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its cunning: If I do not raise thee over my own joy, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth.”Boney M didn’t get this bit into their song,..
