Koren Publishers Jerusalem was established in 1961 by master typographer Eliyahu Koren, who set out to publish the first Tanakh (Bible) edited, designed, printed and bound by Jews in nearly 500 years. The Koren Bible, published in 1962, quickly became recognized the world over for its textual accuracy and innovative graphic layout. In 1981, Koren Publishers Jerusalem introduced The Koren Siddur, which similarly received widespread acclaim. Since then, it has published various editions of the Tanakh, the Siddur, and other religious texts in Hebrew, English and other languages.
