When: March 9th - April 6th, 2014
The Prizes: prizes will be awarded by a lottery including all contributors based on the amount of translations contributed. The more you translate, the better your chances of winning.
  • One new 13 inch MacBook Air
  • One new iPad Air
  • One new iPad Mini
  • Five $25 Amazon gift cards
  • Ten newly-minted Sefaria mugs
No complete translation of Even HaEzer exists in English. By contributing, you'll be making a core text of the Jewish tradition more accessible to the world. By doing it on Sefaria, you'll ensure the text is freely available for the world to use and reuse.

The Details:

  • Translations must be your own original translations, and must follow our translation guidelines.
  • Points are awarded to translators based on the length of the translated text. Each point will get you one entry intro our prize lottery.
  • Translations will be reviewed before awarding prizes. The Sefaria Team reserves the right to disqualify translations that do not follow our translation guidelines.
  • Each contributor may receive only one prize.
