Herzog’s Tanakh Initiative

Tanakh at Herzog College

The Tanakh Initiative of Herzog College exists to bring Tanakh learning to hundreds of thousands of Jews around the world, in their own language and in the most accessible format.  

The Tanakh is more than a book of Jewish history. It’s the story of every Jew, and every Jew is part of the story. Herzog College’s Tanakh Initiative is bringing the Tanakh back into the life of every Jew in a relevant and enjoyable way utilizing the latest technology:

  • HaTanakh.com websites in Hebrew, English, and Spanish
  • Interactive maps and timelines to tour biblical and modern Israel
  • Gamified learning apps to engage today’s schoolchildren
  • Academic-level articles and audio and video shiurim on every aspect of Tanakh
  • Expanding the annual Yemei Iyun B’Tanakh for the global audience

These tools, and others currently under development, are a gateway to connect everyone, everywhere, anytime, to our shared history and future.

Tanakh Herzog: The Next Level

Herzog College and our international education team at Herzog Global are expanding our Tanakh Initiative to create the world’s leading center for the study and dissemination of Tanakh. We are seeking partners who share our commitment to Tanakh Education to help us take the Tanakh Initiative to the next level, with:

  • Translation of popular gamified Tanakh apps from Hebrew to Spanish and English.
