Because of the situation Otzar Hachochma announced they are opening the Basic Otzar HaHochma to the public, at no charge, until further notice.

Otzar HaHochma is the world’s largest digital library, containing more than 100,000 Judaic books, scanned page after page in their original format.

The compilation and scanning of the Jewish books began in Jerusalem sixteen years ago by Ohr HaHochma Ltd publishing house. The efforts of a first-rate team of Jewish studies scholars and premier IT-Professionals turned Otzar HaHochma into a world-renowned brand. Otzar HaHochma continuously expands its collection of ebooks and improves the unique software. G-d willing 5 ,000 new titles are added annually.

Otzar HaHochma is the most comprehensive Judaica site of Jewish and Israeli books. The books encompass all realms of Judaism from ancient times to the modern period. The highlight of Otzar HaHochma’s software is its sophisticated search engine, based on Optical Character Recognition (OCR) with a very high precision rate, which allows maximum accessibility to the content of the Israeli books simply by typing a word or sequence of words.

  1. I’m not familiar with Otzar HaHochma, but there is a free website called sefaria.org that also has 1000’s of seforim. From chumash through mussar and chasideshe seforim. One of the things I like about sefaria is the cross-referencing. For example, last week I was learning a gemara in Pesachem. When you scroll on those lines a sidebar comes up with a list of meforsim, halacha, other gemoros etc. related to this gemara. One of the meforshim I opened wrote something which was cross-referenced to the mussar sefer Orchas Tzadikim. It was extremely helpful for me to see what he wrote. Zeit Gezunt.

    • That’s like saying you can’t go into a seforim store because they sell books you don’t approve of. These kefira books you mention happen to be in a separate section. I have been using Sefaria for many years I find it especially helpful to write chidushai Torah and the like.

  2. I have Sefaria, I love it. But be careful about it if you do your research you’ll see that there are some left wing people involved. ( I’m talking Conservative).
