About Us

Sefaria is a free, living library of Jewish texts, dedicated to building the future of Torah in an open and participatory way. Sefaria envisions a world in which all Jews feel a sense of ownership over the core texts of their tradition and experience the exciting challenge of Torah study.

With this vision in mind, Sefaria’s team built a digital platform to radically lower the barriers to engagement with Jewish texts. In just five years, more than 3.2 million people around the globe have used Sefaria to teach, learn and explore Jewish texts.  

Sefaria’s library is vast and broad, and though it will continue to grow, it already includes a massive Hebrew collection and hundreds of English translations, most of which were not previously available online. One of the most studied texts on Sefaria is The William Davidson Talmud — a free digital edition of the Babylonian Talmud complete with Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz’s English and Modern Hebrew translations, interlinked to major commentaries, biblical citations, Midrash, Halakhah, and more.

As a hub for Jewish learning, Sefaria connects Jews across generations, denominations, and ideologies in the ongoing conversation of the Jewish people.
