Online Jewish Learning: Collaborative Interpretation of Jewish Texts

Online Jewish Learning: Collaborative Interpretation of Jewish Texts

The practice of interpretation is one of the key features in Jewish learning and teaching. It is the basis of the Jewish canon, as it created an ongoing engagement with ancient texts, forging connections between them, and creating new meanings. Today, there is an increase in number of online platforms that make Jewish history, thought, philosophy, religion, and education more accessible. The goal of this research is to better understand how learners use and experience the collaborative interpretation of Jewish sacred texts through online platforms. This study will focus on how digital spaces enable a variety of learners to create new social connections, engage in learning Jewish sacred texts, and access a community of Jewish learning in the 21st century.
