Introducing the iPad Torah

The iPad, the newest of Apple’s technological materials, can now be used to delve into an oldie but a goodie: the Torah.

On the iPad, rustybrick.com advertises, the Torah’s 248 columns, or amudim, can be “magically stitched together.” The application enables the user to easily find the weekly Torah portion complete with bookmarks and a virtual yad. With the ability to shift to sections with the flick of a finger, it is much easier than rolling a scroll.
