God Didn't Say That

Bible Translations and Mistranslations

Who By Fire, Who By Water

Who by File, Who by Water

Who by Fire, Who by Water

I’m pleased to announce that my latest translation goes on sale today in Who by Fire, Who by Water. The book is about Un’taneh Tokef — a medieval poem now widely used in the High Holiday liturgy — and in addition to my translation and commentary, it contains 41 short essays by “contributors who span three continents and all major Jewish denominations.”

It’s not directly related to Bible translation, but it does offer an example of how I go about translating. (I also have an essay in the book: “How was Your Flight?”)
