After seeing how many mistranslations the Old Testament has, I became very suspicious of the mainstream Bible and wanted to go back to the original scripture, i.e. Tanakh, to see what the ancient Hebrews really wrote. Now, since I do not speak Hebrew, I have to be content with the best English translation there is. Is Chabad.org faithful to the original Tanakh?
Is Chabad.org a good source for reading Tanakh?
