The book always had an important role in Jewish life, characterising us, thus, as a nation of interpreters. But what does it mean to share from the tradition of Jewish literature? What could be so special in a reading dynamic inspired by Judaism? And in which way could such dynamic be able to enrich our reading experience about themes that are, very often, absolutely secular?
Thinking of these and many other questions about Judaism and literature, we sought to create Sifriá: a virtual community interested in fulfilling the interest on Jewish culture through a debate on books.
