A New, Digital Wonderland of Jewish Text: Sefaria

Sefaria.orgImagine a digital wonderland where every Jewish text is available free and open-source, where the extraordinary expanse of our texts are waiting to be combed, prodded, and commented upon by interested parties the world over. Good news: this exists.

Started by writer Joshua Foer and techie Brett Lockspeiser—two Jews with a passion for text—Sefaria takes the Jews’ bookish legacy and gives it a 21st-century tune-up. The site aims to compile every letter of Jewish text into one completely interactive space, from Tanakh to Talmud to the Zohar, to modern texts and “all the volumes of commentary in between.”
