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

One of the most wonderful Torah resources available

I personally recommend this app to anyone who will listen. The size of the library is tremendous and is constantly growing. Combining that with the fact that it’s completely free makes this one of the most wonderful Torah resources I’ve ever seen. I think it is the very tool K’lal Yisroel needs in the digital age and it’s executed beautifully. Everything from the development infrastructure (I’ve looked at the GitHub repo multiple times and as a developer I’m very impressed) to the design, is of outstanding & modern quality.
I would like to personally say thank you to everyone at Sefaria.

Game changer!!

First of all, you should know that I never write reviews for apps but decided to make an exception because of how much I love it. I have a bookcase filled with real books on the Bible but I rarely use it anymore because it’s all available on my phone!! I literally use it every day for my daily Talmud class, to study the Torah portion, or to source commentaries or new ideas. Anytime, anywhere. Thank you Sefaria for making the Torah so accessible and intuitive to use, and for bringing God’s word including ancient Jewish wisdom to a modern, technological world. God bless you!!
