About Aharon Varady

If you're here, then you've probably found my work at the Open Siddur Project, or else found work I've contributed to Wikisource, Wikipedia, or Sefaria. Maybe, you've read something clever I wrote on Facebook or Twitter. In any case, you thought what I was doing deserved some financial support and for this I thank you very much. 

If you're entirely new to what I do, I work to preserve the creative content of Jewish culture in accessible, standard, and open-source digital formats that are freely available for adaptive reuse and redistribution under Open Content copyright licenses. I publish my work online and in-print, and make my work available to others to use commercially. I do so because I want my work to be redistributed without limitation and be accessible for improvement. My only request is that I receive proper credit and attribution.

I hope you came here wanting to support a Jewish educator who shared your vision for a Judaism steeped in compassion, curiosity, and creativity, fluent in the landscapes and lore of its myths and legends, and committed to developing the emotional intelligence and awareness of its constituents with effective exercises and activities. If you didn't, that's fine. But if you did come here with that intention, please be in touch. I'd like to make a personal connection.

I hope to earn enough that I can contract and pay others to complete advanced work that I cannot.
