Today is International Women’s Day. Historically in the print age, women were largely excluded from Jewish scholarship. Moving into the digital age of Torah, we believe Sefaria has a unique role to play. It's our goal to not only make Jewish texts accessible to women — and others historically excluded — but to elevate the voices of women in Torah.
We are excited to announce the addition of two modern women scholars to our library!
These books are available on Sefaria with a CC-BY-NC license.
Over the past year, you may have noticed some of our other women’s initiatives including the Jewish Women Scholars’ Writing Fellowship and the addition of a Women in Tech category to our upcoming Powered by Sefaria Contest. Stay tuned for even more women’s Torah, updates on the writing fellowship, and exciting events.
We hope you enjoy these new additions.
In honor of the upcoming holiday of Passover — and the role of Moses in that story — we are giving away three physical copies of Dr. Zornberg's book Moses: A Human Life. Find out how to enter the giveaway on our Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. We will be randomly drawing winners on Sunday, March 21. Due to varying international laws concerning contests and giveaways, only residents of the United States will be eligible to participate in this giveaway.
