Torah Scholar


Available for free from the Alexa Skills store!

...or just tell Alexa to "Enable the Torah Scholar skill."


Ask Amazon Alexa to recite verses and commentary from Tanakh!

With the Torah Scholar skill, you now have access to an entire library of Jewish texts just by using your voice. You can ask Alexa for any verse (or range of verses) in the Tanakh (Old Testament) and it will recite it for you. You can also ask for commentaries on those verses.

As of now, Torah Scholar only understands the Anglicized titles of books (e.g. Exodus, Deuteronomy). Additionally, only the English version of the text is available.
