When the Jew­ish Pub­li­ca­tion Soci­ety (JPS) dis­cov­ered four years ago that Jews serv­ing in the U.S. mil­i­tary were offered only the New Tes­ta­ment as their stan­dard issue Bible,” the non­prof­it pub­lish­ing com­pa­ny respond­ed by rais­ing more than $70,000 to send free copies of the JPS Tanakh (an Eng­lish trans­la­tion of the Hebrew Bible) to 13,000 Jew­ish ser­vice­men and women.

Bra­vo, JPS!
