Helpful Internet Resources

Orthodox Jewish Bible – translated by Dr. Phillip Goble of Artists for Israel International. All significant Hebrew words (or in the NT the Hebrew words lying behind the Greek ones) are transliterated rather than translated into English, so as to enhance recognition of significant words, themes and ideas. The entire Bible (both Tanakh and Brit Chadasha = New Testament) is available by individual chapter. In addition the Brit Chadasha (New Testament) is also available as a single pdf file.

Online bar/bat mitvah tutor – here you can hear the Hebrew text sung. Offered by World ORT, a Jewish educational site.

Unicode Fonts:

  • Tyndale House, Cambridge: Unicode Font Kit (uses Cardo).
  • SIL (Summer Institute of Linguistics): SIL Ezra (Hebrew); Charis, Doulos, Gentium (3 fonts using multilingual Latin-based alphabets, useful for transliteration); I generally use Gentium Plus.
