English Chumashim

Agudas Harabonim forbade translating the Chumash into English

On the 26th of Sivan 5673 (1913) R. Chaim Hirshensohn z”l
proposed at the Agudas Harabanim Asifa, to oppose
any translation of the Tanach into English, regardless how
authentic and correct the translation was done.

Only by the Goyim do you have a King James version for the
English and a  Luther for the Germans etc. For Yidden, it is
against Ruach Yisroel (Jewish spirit). The only translations we 
may have are the Targum and the Meforshei Hatenach based 
on Chazal.
The Agudas Harabanim adopted his proposal to oppose
the English translation of Tanach.  


The famous philanthropist  Yackov Schiff donated $50,000. to

translate the Tanach into English.
