These days the story of the prophet Jeremiah caught my deeper interest. Currently reading it in various German translations of the Bible I see that it might be non-trivial how near to the original the translation is, so I started to compile a side-by-side synopsis of three main versions ("Luther (1984)", "Einheitsübersetzung", "Neue evangelische Übersetzung") But I have not been successful to find a German Tanach-version of it.

Q: Where can I find an online version of the Tanach in German translation? (at least the book of the prophet Jeremiah)

  • @doubleAA: I could not recognize a link to a version of the Tanach (by Mendelssohn for instance, or by Buber) - links to Luther's and others christian translations are known to me. At talmud.de there is only "Kohelet" (and so on with other problems ... of non-existence and shortcomings) Jul 30, 2014 at 13:43

According to this site you can download a german translation of the Tanach by (Reform Rabbi[1]) Dr. Ludwig Philippson from here.

  • Is it a translation based on (little-o) orthodox Judaism?

  • Not a clue - it's all I found online. I've asked my (distant) family living in Germany; they discovered all their Tanach's were translated into English! They are asking around if there are any into German - I'll update ethe answer as soon as I get an answer - if I ever do. Jul 31, 2014 at 9:49

    Upps, a late acceptance. Don't know why I 've forgot "accepting" your answer. Perhaps because I'd found the tanach-translation by Philippson and immediately started reading. :) Sory for that impoliteness! Dec 3, 2019 at 15:54
