I am looking for a Tanakh Sefer (or set) which has as much commentary as possible. I’m basically looking for one place where I can study without opening a thousand other seforim.

    Being in English as a requirement makes this more challenging as being in English means lots more words to fit on the page. There are a lot of options for Tanakh with commentary in English but none that are going to look like a mikros gedolos exactly.

The ArtScroll Tanach Series may be what you're looking for. Personally, I have found the amount of commentary to be a bit overwhelming, but there's a substantial amount of material in there.

  • Thank you for your answer! I have looked at this series before and find the commentary to be very difficult to follow as it is not in any sort of format, rather just on thrown together. I have seen a number of Hebrew versions which breaks down each commentary by the Rabbi with a subheading etc... I was hoping to find something like this Nov 14, 2022 at 4:27
  • Just to note that not the entire Tanakh is available in this series. – Nov 14, 2022 at 10:48

Try Alhatoraha.org. In the settings, check the box for English translations. Any commentary with an English translation will automatically display it.


Al hatorah is probably your best bet but there are still options if you need hard copies, though none of them are complete. There's the JPS Commentator's Bible/Mikraot Gedolot but that's only on chumash. The Judaica Press Tanach does cover the whole bible but the English commentary is a digest not a direct translation of each commentary.
