Bought a Bible as a present and want to write a dedication in it

Edit: I mean תנ”ך. Didn’t know that Tanakh and Bible don’t mean the same thing. I’m not a native English speaker.

Edit2: the Tanakh is in Hebrew. No translation, just the original text.

I’m not sure how to characterize my beliefs anymore, but Judaism has always been important to me.

Lately my partner and I decided to study the Bible together from a secular point of view, and since I am experienced in it, we decided I’ll be the main lead.

He never had a Bible, so I bought him one bound in leather in order to make it special. Since we both look at this from a spiritual and philophical point of view, I wanted to add a dedication to him at the beginning of the book.

I remember I heard somewhere that at the “outskirts” of the book it is allowed and doesn’t damage the sanctity of the book. I want to write the dedication in Modern Hebrew and perhaps add a phrase in Hindi.

Where, or how, can I do this? Thank you.
