    There is a very useful App called Sefaria, available for both Android and Apple phones / tablets. It contains a whole variety of useful items, in Hebrew and / or English, though some parts are not yet available in English because it is new and an ongoing work. By the way, it is free! Go get it and explore it. I'm sure you will not be disappointed if you have an interest in the Tanach, Mishnah etc. It is available from Google Play Store and the Apple equivalent.

    The web title below says it all, really, but do go to the site and see the free stuff you can look at and download (or you can sign up to their FaceBook page). Some other things they have are paid for - but even so you may well be willing to pay if you are in to Biblical archeology. Either way, it costs nothing to look at the web-site :)

    Yay! 43,000 views since 2010. About 6,000 a year or 16 a day - every single day!

    Keep posting info for books, journals and websites so that others can learn.

    I never thought it would be this popular!

    Useful App: Chabad Daily Study. Read Torah daily, with commentary, in Hebrew or English, or both. The App contains many other readings that some might be interested in.

    I read the Torah portions daily - the commentary notes are very interesting at times.

    Useful for Messianic Gentiles

    Dr. Rivkah Adler (an Orthodox Jewish woman living in Israel) compiled and edited testimonies from non-Jews who feel drawn to Torah. The book was released in Israel a month ago and has created a small stir among some Jewish people in the land. :) I was blessed to be able to contribute a chapter as were many people I know personally. There are also chapters written by Orthodox Jews describing their dealings with, and relationships with, the non-Jews who are attempting to walk in Torah as best they understand. The book is now available on Amazon. For those who do not use Amazon, the book is also available at the bookdepository and Barnes and Noble.

    Here is the full description, her disclaimer I have made bold:

    For the first time in 2,000 years, non-Jews around the world are expressing a desire to connect with Torah, the Land of Israel, the God of Israel and the Jewish people. Ten From The Nations: Torah Awakening Among Non-Jews is a pioneering look at this startling phenomenon of a Torah awakening among current and former Christians. If you are intrigued by non-Jews coming closer to Torah, or if you'd like to meet the Jewish men and women who are befriending and teaching them, this book is for you. NOTE TO READERS: The contributors to this book represent a wide range of theological positions. As a result, there are chapters in this volume that have the potential to make some Jews and some people from the Nations uncomfortable. If you’re willing to read about the spiritual stories of people with whom you don’t agree theologically, you’ll find that this book is groundbreaking.

    My own note - there are MANY things in this book I don't agree with. But there are some great things in this book that make it worth the read.

    Please note that there was no link in the above post to a video.

    This thread is not a discussion thread - if you wish to ask a Member for information you will need to send the Member a PM. :)

    If you wish to recommend a non-fiction book, journal or a video please feel free to do so :)

    Each chapter is a different author, almost always Christian, who shares their testimony how they got into the faith and ultimately to Torah as well. There are a few chapters written by Orthodox Jews who work with some of these people (for example, I have a chapter, and so does Hanoch Young who is an Orthodox Jew. He and I have a ministry we call "United 2 Restore" and we are writing a book together) and so forth. I think it is an interesting read mainly because it reveals that people from all over the world who are not in contact with one another, who haven't read the same books or watched the same DVD's, are still coming to and attempting to walk in, Torah. This, to me, shows that the Spirit is behind this because of how diverse our paths are.
