Shavuot is Sefaria's favorite holiday: a celebration all about Torah! And this year was one of our best yet.

This year, thousands and thousands of you studied or prepared for Shavuot study on our site and app in the week leading up to the holiday. We even saw visitors from 168 different countries worldwide (yes, really 168)!

We also launched our first-ever campaign to add an official Torah emoji to the Unicode Consortium. Thousands of you voted and many of you are joining our email list for the first time—welcome! In case you haven't heard, the winning design is this:

We were thrilled to see the story go viral around the globe as our campaign was written up by CNN, The Jerusalem Post, The Times of Israel and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency or JTA.

And in the spirit of Shavuot, we want to share a special thank you for voting. Because there was such a beautiful response to all of the options, we wanted you to have a way to use them no matter what. So our amazing engineers created these GIFs that you can use to animate your excitement for study any time.

Just save them as an image and paste them in any message, the same way you would for a picture.

We look forward to learning with you all summer,
Team Sefaria
