In the past, Sefaria has worked with Urim, Eliyahu Munk’s publishers, to release some of his existing Torah commentary translations with an open license. Now we’ve done something new: partnered with Urim to fund the completion of Rabbi Munk’s most recent translation, the Daat Zekenim Torah commentary, and release it on Sefaria under the CC-BY license–even before it’s available in print.
This kind of partnership is very exciting for us. Sefaria can offer its users a new translation, facilitate the creation of CC-BY Jewish content, and help support traditional publishing–all at the same time.
About Daat Zekenim:
Daat Zekenim is a Torah commentary compiled by later generations of scholars from the Franco-German (Ba’alei HaTosafot) school in the 13th century.
