The Mikra’ot Gedolot “Haketer” project, founded and directed by Prof. Menachem Cohen, former Dean of the Faculty of Jewish Studies at Bar-Ilan University, undertakes to produce the most definitive and authentic edition of the Tanach and its commentaries ever published, based on the famed thousand-year-old Aleppo Codex.

The project, generously supported by Marcos and Adina Katz, makes the texts accessible to the reader via unique reference aids, and the edition is available in both print and online versions, establishing it as a valuable study and research tool. Mikra’ot Gedolot “Haketer” includes the Biblical text, surrounded by medieval Biblical commentaries, ancient Aramaic translations of the Bible, and the Massoretic notes, which were formulated in the first millennium by experts (“Ba'alei Hamasora”) for accuracy and uniformity in copying and transmitting the Biblical text throughout the Jewish communities.

The new edition, called Mikra'ot Gedolot - Haketer was edited by a team of the world’s finest Bible scholars, under the leadership of Prof. Menachem Cohen, who is international authority on medieval Hebrew manuscripts.
This new edition takes us back to the roots of our faith and deepens our understanding of the original text. The Keter Bible corrects thousands of errors in the Tanach and biblical commentaries and features a breakthrough commentary called Ein Ha-Massora which reveals the secrets of the ancient Massoretic markings that appear alongside the original biblical text.
