About Us

Over the last forty years, Yeshivat Har Etzion and Herzog College have revolutionized the study of Tanakh. This pioneering method utilizes critical tools to promote in-depth learning of pshuto shel mikra – the basic meaning of the text, while maintaining devotion to the rich Jewish tradition of rabbinic literature and traditional commentary.
Our challenge was to enable access to our high level content, research, and experience accumulated for over forty years, through groundbreaking technology, for an audience with varying backgrounds and needs.
We are deeply motivated to share our passion for the text, to enable learning, teaching, and engagement with  Tanakh. We invite you to experience HaTanakh.com!
