Wonderful app with one complaint

I don’t want to sound ungrateful, because I am grateful for the wonderful app; but could you please add English translation to the entirety of texts outside the Tanakh. It’s really disappointing when you read the first few chapters only to discover that the rest of a text isn’t translated. I wish my Hebrew were better, and I’m working on it, but I don’t think I’ll be able to read Hebrew that well anytime soon…
Et me know if I’m wrong and need to reinstall the app.

Hi - We are so glad that you are enjoying the app! We are always striving to add translations to Hebrew texts in the library. We also encourage Sefaria learners to add translations to the Sefaria Community Translation. You can update the offline library in "settings" to make sure that you have the newest texts. - Team Sefaria

This app is a pure, no-foolin’ miracle: a treasure, a wonder, a beautiful thing done by beautiful, beautiful people. The bona-fide lamed-vavniks involved in the making of it have my deepest respect and admiration for making free, to even the most clueless of us gentiles, the wisdom of the ancients. Ready access, for example, to the Onkelos targum is a source of great help, especially where the more difficult passages of the Torah (e.g. Gen 4:7) are concerned.

My only suggestion (and in my eagerness to write this I haven’t spent much time with the settings, so perhaps I’m just a fool) is that one be able to read side-by-side, e.g., the Hebrew and Aramaic (that is, the Torah on one side, targum on other).

Thanks again to the developers, programmers, linguists, compilers, and all the rest! יהי שׁם יהוה מברך

A Chest of Treasures

This app is absolutely wonderful. I find that it is helping to greatly increase my knowledge and understanding of many aspects of the Way. Spanning the earliest scriptural and liturgical writings through the Rabbinical Commentaries and thoughts, through the mystical texts, to current and contemporaneous scholarly works.

May the Lord God Almighty, King of the Universe, Yehovah, Bless and Protect the memory of the Man to whom this Sefaria is dedicated; his loving and righteous family; the Children of Israel, Levy, and Cohen; all those who love and fear and adore Yehovah; Righteous of the Nations who are with Israel and the Hebrew People. May Yehovah Bless and Protect all those who read and study this great work, the Sefaria. May Yehovah Bless and protect and protect the State of Israel, its leadership, and the Israelis; and the United States of America, friend of Israel; the President and leadership of the United States, and the righteous of the American people. Amen.
Shema Israel: Yehovah Eloheynu, Yehovah Echad. Amen

אלוהים, מלך היקום, יהוה, יברך ויגן על זכרו של האדם שאליו מוקדש ספר זה. ואלוהים יברך את משפחתו האוהבת והצודקת. יהוה יברך את ישראל, לוי וכהן. יברך את כל מי שאוהב את יהוה. יהוה יברך את כל מי שקורא ומלמד את היצירה הגדולה של הספרייה. יהוה יברך ויגן על מדינת ישראל, על הנהגתה ועל קדושת ישראל. יהוה יברך את ארצות הברית של אמריקה, ידידת ישראל הגדולה ביותר, את נשיא ארצות הברית ואת מנהיגיה ואת העם האמריקני.
שמע ישראל, ה 'אלוהינו הוא יהוה אחד. אָמֵן
