The project, its web site states, “aims to rediscover traces of Jewish cultural heritage in urban architecture as an integral part of European history and to raise awareness and respect amongst different cultures through different mechanisms.”

A revolution has occurred, but most people, it seems, have not noticed. I refer to the worldwide effort to digitalize the great medieval Jewish manuscript tradition. The result is a brave new world, in which these precious treasures of the Jewish past are now available to scholars, students, and the public at large. As far as I can tell, this major enterprise has not received the attention it deserves, while the use of these manuscripts has not yet been fully integrated into the teaching of Jewish Studies. I, for one, have become an evangelist for the cause, as reflected by the fact that during the past decade, more and more of my teaching, research, and lecturing has been devoted to these manuscripts.

It starts simple. One problem. One need. One idea. At Sefaria, we take that simple start and grow it collaboratively into robust and sometimes game-changing solutions. This is the heart of our approach to research and development: we listen to our users, we study the potential impact of implementing new tools and features, and then we innovate. We have an ambitious vision to make Torah more accessible and we balance a long list of new product ideas and everyday maintenance needs along with a constant stream of user feedback.

Project Zug is Mechon Hadar’s online learning platform. Participants choose a course that interests them, and receive the materials online, to learn on their own schedule. Zug means “pair” in Hebrew, because Jewish learning is traditionally done in a havruta – a two-person partnership. All Project Zug participants have a partner, either in person or online, with whom to navigate the course: to question, to debate, and to build a relationship.

“The Hidden Story of Queen Esther” is actually the very first Aleph Beta video course ever consisting of six video presentations. Rabbi Fohrman’s insights about how the story of Purim is actually a story about how we deal with painful memories from our past are nothing short of breathtaking.
