There is a new and hopefully groundbreaking project being launched today. Consider it the Wikipedia of…
The idea is to take Jewish case law – teshuvot – and make them accessible to Jews who otherwise would not have access to them.
By translating teshuvot and posting them on the Internet on a Wikipedia-like website.
You can help this project get off the ground in two ways:
1. Translate a teshuva – or a dozen teshovot – and post them on OpenSourceHalacha.com.
2. Tell your friends about OpenSourceHalacha.com. Post a link to OpensourceHalacha.com on your blog. Talk about it in shul (after davening, of course).
We can use the power of the Internet to show Jews how Jewish law works in all its many facets, without the spin and (well meaning) censorship that often marks current publications.
