The Book of Genesis, or Bereshit (lit. “in the beginning”), takes us on a journey through the story of creation and introduces us to our ancestors along their path from the Garden of Eden to Egypt. And even though many of us know how the story ends, we continually reread it, finding new significance every time. To celebrate this next cycle, our engineers have developed a new way for you to experience and learn Torah on Sefaria.
