Israel National Library Launches Digital Jewish Manuscript Archive - Ktiv
Israel's National Library launched an online database called Ktiv, aggregating tens of thousands of digitized Jewish manuscripts belonging to collections from across the globe. Scholars and laypersons can access almost half of the known handwritten Jewish texts from Spain to Afghanistan, which have been digitized and catalogued online. In some cases, parts of a manuscript that have been long divided between collections will be reunited digitally for the first time in centuries. The archive contains nearly 4.5 million images from 45,000 manuscripts — slightly more than half of all known volumes. They include prayer books, biblical texts and commentary, philosophy, literature and scientific writings, in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Judeo-Arabic and more.

Building Jewish Identity Through Engaging Video: A Developer's Perspective
BimBam (formerly G-dcast) is a Jewish media studio. Our creative team has worked on over 300 short videos and apps, and we have big league experience from Apple, Pixar, the New York Times, etc. Usually, people find us through our work—they don’t ask us too many creative questions beyond, “Can I do a part in a video?” That’s because they or their kids already love the programs, and it’s easy to see our track record. Our Judaism 101 and early childhood education videos have clear and easily shared metrics—high viewership numbers, great audience retention curves and accurate aim at the demographics we’re targeting. What we do get asked routinely is, “Since this is media, how can you know that you’re really having an impact? What proof do you have that video can build Jewish identity or literacy?”

Confronting Sinat Chinam: Resources for Teaching Digital Citizenship
The rabbis of the Talmud tell us that the Temple was destroyed because of sinat chinam [baseless hatred] (Yoma 9). On Tisha B’Av, we mourn the destruction of the Temple, as well as other tragedies in Jewish history, and are also charged with ridding ourselves of sinat chinam. In schools today, though students may not necessarily say hurtful words to their peers, the anonymity and distance that the Internet provides can make it a space where sinat chinam and bullying thrive. How do we help our students understand the meaning of baseless hatred and how to prevent it? In honor of upcoming Tisha B’Av, take an opportunity to check out these resources, which you can use next year to teach students about the dangers of sinat chinam in the digital space and how they can confront cyber bullying and promote kindness and empathy online.

Sefaria in Action
Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Educational Partnership Initiative cohort for a fruitful school year! Starting in 2014, Sefaria launched the Partnership to invite teachers of Torah to formally be part of building Sefaria. The initiative, which began with four day schools and 100 students, was created to: (1) help teachers harness digital tools effectively and improve pedagogy around Jewish texts; and (2) provide Sefaria with a cohort of educators who use Sefaria in the classroom and deliver feedback on product development and refinement. This past school year, the program directly served 19 day schools, along with nine communal institutions, and reached more than 1,000 students.

Look, but Don’t Touch: Moscow’s Schneerson Collection Goes Online
In 1922, a few years before he fled the Soviet Union, the sixth Chabad-Lubavitch Rebbe Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson petitioned the Russian government to return 35 crates of books they had seized years earlier. The books had been passed down to his father, Rabbi Shalom DovBer Schneerson, by his grandfather and had belonged collectively to generations of Lubavitch Hasidim going back to Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liady, who began the collection in the 18th century. The Soviet government did not return the books, and for almost a century they remained on the shelves of the Lenin public library in Moscow. But this month the Russian State Library will finish scanning and putting online the more than 4,500 books in the Schneerson Collection, making them accessible to everyone in the world at the click of a mouse.
