Depending on the area where you live, you may be able to find some books on Judaism at your local library. I just searched for the Jewish Study Bible and there is a copy available at Brandon and Royal Oak libraries. If you live in Southeast Michigan and have a library card, go to your local library and ask them how to get it through the inter-library loan system.

I'm laid off too and the library has become my #1 source of free entertainment.

There's also all sorts of Jewish information on the net as well. This two are pretty good and I have found them very useful in my comparison of Christianity and Judaism:

Judaism 101
JewishEncyclopedia.com

If you are considering conversion to Judaism, this site will help you as well. Understand that the Rabbis will try to discourage you from doing so. That is part of their job as they want only people who really mean it to do so. They do not wish to waste time with those who are merely "trying it out".

Conversion to Judaism Resource Center

I'm sure they have a copy of the Torah at your library.

The "Torah" is the 1st 5 Books of Moses, Psalms and the Prophets basically (called the Tanach). Shouldn't be hard to find. Esword offered a download of the "Hebrew Names Version" of the scriptures as well. All downloadable. Great to have as a resource. Sure beats the KJV which is highly contaminated with the greek translations.

Not to mention Latin mistranslation that were further mistranslated into English. The KJV is a mess.

Try finding a local Jewish Community Center or Synogog. I am sure they would help you. The one that is close to my home is very welcoming and open to teaching people about Judaism and the Torah.

Dude, the jewish version of the bible is the Old Testament. The first five books of the old testament are the Torah, the list of Jewish Laws.
