Aleph Beta

A New Way to Read the Torah!

Welcome to a new way to read the Torah! We believe in the transformative power of daily scripture reading, and have designed Read the Torah from the ground up to help you build positive reading habits. Scripture is the foundation for millions of believers around the world, and our desire is to help them in their journey of learning.

Read the Torah is a mobile app that prompts you to read one chapter of the Pentatuch (the first five books of the Bible) every day, and encourages you to build this as a daily habit. Supporting features include:

  • A reading plan that encourages reading one Torah chapter every day
  • "Streak" tracking, which shows you how many days in a row you've been reading
  • The ability to "free read" any part of the Torah
  • Features to capture text notes directly in the context of a verse
  • The ability to capture a voice note directly in the context of a verse
  • A place to capture your reflections, which we call "questions" and "outlines" at the end of your reading
  • Aleph Beta content featured on chapters (where applicable)
  • Confetti to celebrate your reading achievements!
  • The ability to export your weekly notes, questions, and outlines to a PDF, which is emailed to you
