The Open Torah project produces a number of websites, papers and code packages.
In addition to the main website www.opentorah.org, the project maintains:
- digital edition of Rabbi Wichnin’s Chumash Questions book: www.chumashquestions.org;
- archive documents from the early history of Chabad (including the arrests of the Alter Rebbe in 1798 and 1800): www.alter-rebbe.org.
- paper describing ideas (dating from 1991) for the dream environment for working with Jewish texts;
- companion paper on typesetting Jewish texts;
- paper on Rambam’s Laws of the Sanctification of the Moon;
goals of the paper:
- reconstruct models that Rambam uses and their parameters from the Rambam’s text;
- identify misprints in the traditional editions;
- see how Rambam’s calculations of the moon visibility compare to the current models.
- code that generates and serves the www.alter-rebbe.org website;
- code for working with specific Jewish texts and for calculating Torah reading/learning schedules;
- code implementing Rambam’s calculations with dates, time intervals and angles and related algorithms.
- desire to publish texts in multiple formats was part of the motivation for writing Gradle DocBook plugin in general and its support for mathematics in DocBook in particular; after the switch from DocBook to Asciidoc the plugin is no longer used or developed.
