The Stone Chumash was published by
ArtScroll only five years ago, but it
has already become the standard edition
of the Pentateuch in Orthodox synagogues
throughout the English-speaking world.
It includes not only a clear English
translation of the text, but also Rashi
(Hebrew) and Onkelos (Aramaic)
commentaries, and an English-language
anthology of explanations by over 200
recognized Jewish commentators,
including thumbnail biographies.
In a bold move, ArtScrolls Rabbi Nosson
Scherman asked TES to adapt the
Pentateuch into a CD-ROM with a
computerized concordance, gematria
calculator and many other features.
In response, TESs resident computer
expert, Jeff Milgram, produced an
impressive, user-friendly piece of
software. Now, instead of searching for
hours, the user can locate in seconds
every reference to a specific word,
root, groups of words or verses in the
first five books of the Bible.
Upon opening the program, the user can
choose from a Hebrew, English, or
Hebrew-English Pentateuch text with full
linear translation (giving Hebrew on one
side of the screen and English on the
other). There is also the choice of
eight colors for both the background and
the text display and eight alternative
fonts - sized from a normal 12 to a
gigantic 36 points.
The appropriate haftara sections for
each Torah reading are included, as are
the Five Megillot. The program, suitable
for PCs and Macs, also has ready-made
lists, such as the 613 Commandments.
The gematria feature gives the numerical
equivalents of Hebrew words or verses
using any of seven different methods of
Of special benefit to users, especially
those preparing homework or study
material, is the note feature. Theres a
Hebrew- and English-language word
processor that allows the user to type
in his own notes.
While the original disk was impressive,
the improved version offers a lot more.
Most prominent is the on-line tutorial,
spoken in clear English..
Rashi commentary to the entire
Pentateuch can be viewed in regular
Hebrew or Rashi fonts, and the $79
version has an English translation of
Rashi,a boon to the English-speaking
Search capabilities are enhanced, with
searches according to proximity, root
words, topics and footnote.
The new version also has the capability
of linking spoken notes or even music,
recorded via the computers microphone,
into specific verses of text that can be
accessed with just a click of the mouse.
Photos entered into the database can
also be linked to a specific verse and
If the user enters a lot of data on his
own - in the form of written and voice
notes, pictures and music - he will end
up with his own customized Pentateuch.
