In the two years since its release, over fifty thousand users have discovered the ArtScroll App and the Wasserman Digital Initiative. With interactive features and the ability to carry multiple Talmud volumes in the palm of their hands, the Schottenstein Digital Edition Talmud Bavli has transformed the way people learn Talmud on the go.

And now, after years of development, we’re happy to announce that the Wasserman Digital Initiative is expanding. No longer is the ArtScroll Digital Library focused on the Talmud alone. With two new digital editions now available, and multiple new projects on the way, the ArtScroll App is opening the doors of learning and Torah study for hosts of new users.

Introducing

The Kleinman Digital Edition Kitzur Shulchan Aruch for iOS and Android devices:

Carry all five volumes of the renowned Kleinman Edition Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in the palm of your hand, while having access to the groundbreaking and interactive features of the ArtScroll digital library – at less than half the cost of the print edition.

and

The Jaffa Digital Edition Mesillas Yesharim/Way of the Upright for iOS and Android devices:

Combine the classic phrase-by-phrase translation and explanatory notes that the Jaffa Edition Mesillas Yesharim is known for with the state-of-the art innovative digital features of the ArtScroll app, for less than half the price of the print version.

In addition to the popular features of the print editions, such as the fully vowelized text, clear translations, detailed appendices, and ArtScroll’s trademark phrase-by-phrase elucidation, the new digital editions of the Kleinman Edition Kitzur Shulchan Aruch and the Jaffa Edition Mesillas Yesharim feature fantastic new interactive features:

  • Need the translation of a Hebrew word? Simply tap on the word and watch its translation appear.
  • Using the English translation and footnotes feature? Watch them scroll synchronously as you scroll through the Hebrew text.
  • When you look up an entry in the Table of Contents, you don’t need to scroll or flip to your desired page. Simply tap on the Table of Contents entry and you’ll go right to the page you want. This feature works for the footnotes and index as well.
  • Talmudic references don’t need to send you to the bookshelf to pull out another volume. Tap on a footnote and you can bring up the portion of the Talmud it references.
  • With the digital editions, you can add notes, bookmarks and highlights, and you can view them on your other devices.

Weekly Download: Yearning With Fire

On Tuesday we fasted for Shivah Assar B’Tammuz, marking the beginning of saddest weeks of the Jewish calendar. During the three weeks, and leading up to Tisha B’av, we mourn the destruction of Jerusalem and the Bais  Hamikdash, the holy Temple, and our current exile in galus.

Our sages teach us the importance of feeling a deep longing for for mashiach and the days of redemption. But achieving that seep inner longing is much easier said than done. How does one go about feeling that burning desire in the depths of their heart? How does one really learn to feel that yearning?

The answers lie within Yearning With Fire by Rabbi Heshy Kleinman, author of the best-selling and revolutionary Praying With Fire books.The deep insights and inspirational messages surrounding this important topic are broken down into daily learning segments. In just five minutes each day, you can change your outlook on life, and approach this Tisha B’av with the proper thoughts and feelings about galus and geulah.

To help you prepare for the nine days and tisha b’av, we’re offering you a sampler download of Yearning With Fire. Download it. Print it. Learn it. Be inspired! And of course, please tell your friends about this valuable resource available from ArtScroll: every Thursday we offer an inspirational Torah download, related to the weekly parasha or other timely topics.
