Many of us know about @SefariaProject and the extraordinary work they do; I want to share here some amazing online resources in Hebrew you may not know about that can greatly enrich your learning and teaching.
First, along the lines of Sefaria is @AlHaTorah (alhatorah.org) which has options in English, as well. Among its amazing features are extensive Mikraot Gedolot, including commentaries by Abravanel, the Netziv, and others not elsewhere available. /2
It also has extensive commentaries on Shas (the Talmud), and an excellent feature for engaging with classic questions about the Parasha, Parasha Topics. (alhatorah.org/Index:Parashot…). I'm sure there's much more I haven't discovered — play around with it! /3
Next we have the Proyekt Ben Yehuda (benyehuda.org), an extraordinary site that collects *all* classic Hebrew literature, essays, etc. not under copyright: Ahad Ha'Am, A.D. Gordon, H.N. Bialik, Rachel HaMeshoreret and more contemporary writers like Shulamit Hareven /4
This is especially valuable because, tragically, many of these essential voices are not kept in print. In lieu of an Israeli or Jewish equivalent of the Library of America, the Proyekt Ben Yehuda keeps available complete texts of foundational thinkers and writers. /5
Another important resource is @hebrewbooks, which has collects pdfs of an enormous array of mostly religious Jewish books. The collection is eclectic but extensive. It's like 300 strange batei midrash thrown together. /6
On the culture front, @zemereshet is a huge collection of out-of-copyright Hebrew music, from the prestate period to today organized by composer and musician. If, for example, you want to hear multiple settings of a poem, you can do so here. I've only just begun to explore it /7
The National Library of Israel also now hosts an updated version of the Piyyut and Tefilla site, collecting an enormous array of Jewish liturgical music web.nli.org.il/sites/nlis/he/…, searchable by text, 'edah (community), and season. It is def. worth exploring /8
The Israeli Broadcast Authority, now called כאן, puts an enormous amount of their content on YouTube for free. Here you can find short videos, full programs, news and more. They also have sub-channels for music, educational programming, news and more /9
