On Sunday, November 20, 2016, Jews around the globe will unite “under the same sky.” The Aleph Society invites your community to register (it’s free!) and join us. We will examine Jewish texts to explore nature and nurturing, ecology and the environment, cycles and seasons. Over 500 communities have joined past Global Day activities worldwide, drawing participants from every point on the religious, communal and ethnic spectrum. Under the aegis of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, over 35 national and international groups are co-sponsors of the Global Day, together with the Aleph Society.

Tanakh Profiles - An Encyclopedia of Biblical Personalities is an alphabetical listing of every individual mentioned in Tanakh. Its focus is the literal presentation of the stories and lives of the many people who populate the Bible. Entries contain three pieces of information. 1. The individual's name; 2. Locations where the person appears in Tanakh 3. A summary of the personality's life as recorded in the text. For many individuals mentioned in the Torah I have also included the Torah reading portions (parshot) in which they feature. Lengthy entries in Neviim or Ketubim contain a separate detail: when a career spans many chapters, I have noted the chapter numbers in which events occur. All entry titles are vocalized (are written with vowels), and the occasional name (of a person or a place), or term within the entry itself is also vocalized.

The Global Day of Jewish Learning, a project of the Aleph Society and Rabbi Adin Steinzaltz, is one day a year in which over 500 communities will study a common theme. It reaches every corner of the Jewish world, with communities from over 40 countries on six continents participating and brings Jews of all backgrounds together in a day of study. We believe it is the largest world-wide community study of Jewish texts. This year’s Global Day is Sunday, November 15, 2015. This Year’s theme is “Love: Devotion, Desire and Deception.”

This site, developed and maintained by Professor Mark Brettler, aims to teach students how to use a set of specialized tools for the study of the Hebrew text of the Hebrew Bible (henceforth, the Bible). These are different from the tools used for modern Hebrew because the languages are substantially different, and because the study of ancient texts, written in 'dead' or 'literary' languages, such as BH (biblical Hebrew), is fundamentally different from the study of modern languages.
