How does making my source sheets public help Sefaria?

There are several ways that making sheets public helps the Sefaria community.

  • Public sheets become part of the Sefaria library. Public sheets are linked to the text library by the texts that are on the sheet. People reading texts in the library can click on the sidebar and see all of the public sheets which reference the text.
  • Because sheets are created every day, they keep up with what is happening in the world and offer contemporary insights.
  • Tags on public sheets are used to determine relevant texts and sheets on Sefaria's topics pages.

Great! How do I make my sheets public? And how do I tag sheets?

To make a sheet public:

1. From the edit view on a sheet, click on "Share".

2. Toggle "yes" for "List on Sefaria".

3. Select your privacy settings.

  • Anyone can view - The sheet can only be viewed and not edited or added to.
  • Anyone can add - Those with access to the source sheet can add to it, but not edit the existing text.
  • Anyone can edit - Those with access to the source sheet can edit it.

4. Click "Save".

To tag a sheet:

1. From the edit view on a sheet, click “Share” on the top right of the sheet editor.

2. In the box marked “Add Tags…” enter relevant keywords, each separated by a comma. Choose from suggested tags in the dropdown menu.
