The Mercava websites hosts textual resources, with commentaries, for endless amount of Jewish text, thought, prayer, and philosophy. Mercava is original because the look and feel of Jewish texts mimic the actual text of Talmud or a page of Chumash.
It also contains interactivity for the user: the ability to ‘markup,’ manipulate, highlight, comment, add media and discussion, on any part of the text with your device. It is very helpful for teaching in classrooms, or following along with your favorited pages, or as a reminder to join the ‘Daf Yomi’ class.
Mercava’s interdisciplinary nature makes it accessible to students who prefer different learning methods. The ability to upload images, 3D graphics, maps, and videos, is crucial for visual learners. Other students enjoy creating voice recordings and generating flow charts. Through Mercava, students develop skills in reading traditional texts and sharpen their understandings of the philosophic foundations of Judaism.
