Thank you for this site. I've used its NT texts in my art.

A former Yeshiva (Methivta) student, raised in a solid religious home, I've since expanded my search, and love the re-placing of Christianity in its Semitic home. My home, too. When y'all say"Shlama akhi" it resonates. Aramaic featured in much of my learning and liturgy.

My folks even gave me, a New York City boy, a Sephardic name.
("But what's your English name?")

And as a letter artist, I particularly adore the Estrangela script. In love with its beauty.


1- I once saw a NT in Aramaic with Hebrew translation, side-by-side, using "Hebrew" characters and vowels.
How do I lay my hands on it?
2- How could I get some phone pronunciation coaching, perhaps in exchange for some art?

These will enable me to prepare for performances I intend to give of the Sermon on the Mount.

You can buy it from Dean Dana's web site :

or buy it at Amazon:

It was translated into Hebrew by Aramaic Scriptures Research Society in Israel. You can learn the pronunciation from the vowel points. One good thing about this Bible is you can learn Hebrew and Aramaic at the same time.

I specially ordered mine from Singapore's Bible Society. They ordered 2 copies. I must be one of the 2 owners of this book in Singapore since it is not available at Borders, Kinokuniya, MPH, Times Bookshop, Popular Bookshop, & Big Bookshop. <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) -->

But that was long time ago before Amazon & e-commerce.

Shlama Dan,

I have to jump in here.

Dan, thanks for this information. I just told a friend about this book and that I would really like to have it. Knowing that is limited in quantity and no plans for reprint I couldn't pass this up, so he bought me a copy just a few minutes ago through Dean Dana's site.

Again, thanks for this valuable link. <!-- s:bigups: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bigups.gif" alt=":bigups:" title="Big Ups" /><!-- s:bigups: -->

BTW, Amazon says the item is currently not available.
I would love to own 90% of the titles carried by Dean Dana's site, but my current situation does not allow me to do so. <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad --> <!-- sHuh --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/huh.gif" alt="Huh" title="Huh" /><!-- sHuh --> <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad -->
