About this app

The Aleph Beta app is filled with life-changing Torah videos & podcasts that matter.

Torah, in Hebrew, means guidebook. It comes from the same word as morah, teacher, or horeh (parent or guide). The Torah is supposed to guide us, presumably. Often, though, when we turn to Torah for ancient and spiritual wisdom, we don’t immediately pick up a Tanakh. We look everywhere and anywhere else for inspiration. We gravitate towards Hassidut, Mysticism, Jewish philosophy or even talmudic legal analysis.

Many of us don’t feel like opening up the pages of Leviticus to read the week’s Torah portion, or the stories of the Sale of Joseph, or the complaints in the desert to give us that inspirational boost in the morning. We’ve grown distant from Torah text as a source of guidance.

Aleph Beta’s mission, led by Rabbi David Fohrman, is to help you revisit the text you may already be quite familiar with, read it honestly, without preconceived notions or barriers, and authentically discover the richness that was always there.

Our guarantee is that you will be deeply surprised about the latent meaning in laws and stories you may have long overlooked.

At Aleph Beta we make stunning animated videos and slickly-produced podcasts on the parsha, Jewish holidays & fast days, laws & mitzvot, prayers, relationships, big philosophical ideas and many other topics that present Torah ideas in an easy-to-consume way.

In a world where you could be watching Netflix and YouTube, we want you here with us, experiencing the timeless wisdom of Torah in a way that stands up to the best production value the secular world has to offer.

Our app is totally free to download, and we provide 30 minutes of free content a month for you to watch, listen & enjoy. For unlimited access to streaming, downloading, transcripts, parsha learning guides & much more, we offer a Premium membership for a small monthly or annual fee (see details below).

I upgraded to Premium membership because the content is so good .... But, the app makes it worthless. It kept crashing. It would only play with an active screen, making it impractical to listen to when exercising. There was no history view to show what I've seen already. The search function was terrible. I have uninstalled/reinstalles three times. Now it doesn't open at all. I am dropping ALL membership until it actually works.

I download in the app and then when I go on the airplane the downloads don't work. Also it's weird that the app will do buggy things like if I switch apps and I go back to aleph beta, the audio content won't show that it's playing and I won't be able to pause. I love the content though. I just want to be able to access it when I'm outside internet zones. I also just bought the Passover book.

Love the content. Great, insightful videos. However, the app has some issues. I can't access downloaded videos without internet access, which seems to defeat the point. If that issue were resolved, I'd give this 5 stars!
