Alhatorah.org is a new site created by Neima and Hillel Novetsky. The site attempts to mine the vast riches of 2500 years of Biblical interpretation and to illuminate the text of the Torah using an array of lenses such as plot and character analysis, structural and literary devices, Biblical parallels, Ancient Near Eastern backdrop, realia, literature, and art. It aspires to empower all circles and levels of the community by providing teaching tools and resources and imparting a systematic learning methodology.

As this coming Shabbat is Parashat Yitro, you might enjoy using the Shemot Chapter 18 prototype which is currently available on the site. An easy place to start is Shabbat Table Discussions, accessible from the purple Family menu (top center after entering the site). Or choose any other topic you like and simply follow the links.

Neima is currently building a team to enable us to complete an initial version of all of Sefer Shemot over the coming year. To learn more about the project, its plans, and its supporters, click on the black About menu (top right corner of the site) or contact us. We would very much appreciate if you could let us know if you are able to access the site, and we would be grateful for all feedback, critique, and suggestions.
