Disclaimer : We only distribute seforim that are NOT copyrighted. If you see a sefer on our web site that is copyrighted and should not be distributed please let us know immediately by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of our seforim are scanned copies of the original publications and are compiled in Adobe PDF format. Some seforim are just plain text of the sefer typed in and saved as PDF. We usually do this for seforim whose actual publication is copyrighted and therefore we cannot distribute the scanned copy. The nicer thing about the plain text is that you can actually search it.
Our audio shiurim are recorded in the MP3 format. You can download Winamp from to listen to these files. You can either download the whole file before you listen to it or double click on the link and it will play online.
We do this for mitzvos of Learning Torah and Writing a Sefer Torah. The poskim tell us that nowadays we can fulfill the mitzva of Writing a Sefer Torah by purchasing printed seforim. You fulfill this mitzva just by having the seforim, even if you don't learn them. Therefore think about it. If you download a sefer and have it in your possession and print it out, you have fulfilled a mitzva from the Torah. Of course, you should learn these seforim also. Our goal is to make sure that no matter where a person is, as long as they have access to the internet, they can open up a sefer and learn it.
Also, it is a great mitzva to distribute seforim that are not easily available for people. This is our primary goal. We distribute seforim that are forgotten, out-of-print, and are very hard to find.
Of course. Please email us at email@example.com the title, author and publication place and date of the sefer and we will let you know as soon as possible if we can put it up or not and how to scan the sefer?
We are only planning on putting up shiurim on complete seforim. We are not planning on putting up any isolated shiurim on specific topics. If you have shiurim on a particular sefer that you would like to put up or if you are interested in recording shiurim on a particular sefer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No. Our friend, Chaim Rosenberg, runs a web site called HebrewBooks.org that distributes seforim of American Rabbis. Our web site was inspired by him, after we had the personal pleasure of meeting him.
We do not offer any printing of binding services. But we can recommend Kinko's or any similar type of service place to print and bind books. You can either print the book yourself and then take it there to get it bound or just bring the PDF file there on a CD and they will print it and bind it for you. You can view their services and locations in your local area at Please verify that the file prints ok before paying Kinko's to print it for you. See note 10 in the Technical section of this FAQ. SeforimOnline.org does NOT take any responsibility for any damages, financial or otherwise, that you may incur while trying to print and/or bind the seforim that we distribute.
Online journals in Jewish Studies generally follow the same types of editorial principles that ensure compliance with scholarly standards of other academic journals that have either moved to digital platforms, simultaneously publish in print and digital formats, or were born digital. Some of these journals are embracing new technologies and publishing paradigms: adhering to the open access model, providing quicker access to new work, being easily searchable, providing multimedia features, promoting interactive participation such as online and community discussions, and options to comment on articles. Among the most recent born-digital scholarly journals in Jewish Studies are Quntres: An Online Journal for the History, Culture, and Art of the Jewish Book; Quest: Issues in Contemporary Jewish History; Perush; and The Journal of Inter-religious Dialogue. These journals were conceived with the vision that the future is digital, and with a desire to stimulate and encourage dialogue and debate among researchers, academics, as well as the general public. These last three provide opportunities at their websites for reader comments, input, and feedback.
Born-digital poetry on the Internet consists of literary works that have been created and disseminated on the Web. Publication of poetry in print has been moved more and more into small-run and boutique journals and monographs. As a platform, the Web has enabled the publishing of poetry to move from high cultural echelons into a popular creative realm. In Israel, poets have been using the Internet for years. Bama Hadasah began under the initiative of Boaz Rimmer in 1998 as a free online archive of original Israeli prose, poetry, music, and art. The site includes more than 200,000 poetic works, and hundreds of thousands of works of art. While the site does not have a formal literary editor, the editors maintain some editorial control.
Blogs by their nature can engage a much wider community in the discursive process. Jewish Studies is a discipline for which there is much expertise outside the academy. As more and more scholars within Jewish Studies post to blogs of Jewish content, their comments, reviews, and arguments mingle with those of graduate students, rabbis, and knowledgeable people outside of the academy and seminary. Many online book reviews can be found in blogs. At the Seforim blog, ninety-five posts were recently listed under the label "book reviews." These open reviews are often provocative and can take the form of essays, and evoke responses and comments from within and beyond the academy.
Frank Schloeffel, a scholar affiliated with the "Ismar Elbogen Netzwerk für jüdische Kulturgeschichte e.V." and a group of colleagues have gotten together to develop a prototype of a virtual space "JewLib. Digital Archive-Library" utilizing these technologies. Their goal is to provide researchers with an online source of facts and information on primary research resources for the study of Jewish history and cultures. Similar in concept to Wikipedia, the responsibility for adding or modifying information relies on the community with the ability to work in the database open to anyone after registering. What is truly exciting about this project is that a new, young generation of Jewish Studies scholars with an understanding of the vitality of community driven endeavors is becoming familiar enough with digital tools and practices to develop resources useful for scholary pursuits. 041b061a72
