About the Author:

Israel Drazin is the author of seven books, five of which are on Targum Onkelos. He was the first scholar to recognize that the Targum took hundreds of items from the Tannaitic Midrashim- those that were edited around 400 C.E.- and even incorporated many words found in these Midrashim in his translation. He was able, therefore, to date the Targum Onkelos around 400 C.E., a period much later than is widely accepted, because of the Targum’s reliance upon these Midrashim. Stanley M. Wagner is Rabbi Emeritus of The Beth HaMedrosh HaGadol-Beth Joseph Congregation in Denver, Colorado; Professor Emeritus at the University of Denver and Founding Director and Director Emeritus of its Center for Judaic Studies; and Founding Director and Director Emeritus of the Mizel Museum in Denver. He wrote, edited, or co-edited four volumes, A Piece of My Mind, Traditions of the American Jew, Great Confrontations in Jewish History and Great Schisms in Jewish History and was General Editor of a six volume series entitled Christian and Jewish Traditions in the 20th Century.

Review:

An enormous labor, presenting vast quantities of information, handsomely designed, user friendly and an important reference for years to come. -- Intermountain Jewish News, June 2006

At last the English speaking world will be able to understand why our Sages mandated the weekly reading of Onkelos. -- Rabbi Yona Metzger, Chief Rabbi of Israel

Historical exegetical perspectives are covered intelligently and helpfully, so that the reader becomes aware of the characteristics of the text. -- Dr. Avivah Zornberg, author of Genesis: The Beginning of Desire and The Particulars of Rapture: Reflections on Exodus

In Gefen's handsome new volume the authors translate Onkelos into modern English supplying detailed commentary on 10,000 meaningful deviations. -- David Klinghoffer, Religion BookLine -- Publishers Weekly, 2/22/2006

In an imaginatively conceived book the authors have enriched our understanding on how the Bible itself is to be read. -- Michael Rosenak, The Hebrew University, emeritus

Very clearly printed and notated in both Hebrew and English, making it very easy to find a particular reference. -- Isranet Book Review by Edgar Asher
