Project Ben-Yehuda

Project Ben-Yehuda aims to make accessible the classics of Hebrew literature (poetry and prose at first, and then essays and other forms) to the reader of Hebrew. It is named for Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the scholar largely responsible for reviving Hebrew as a modern language. For that purpose, the literary works are converted to a format that is readable and searchable on the internet. Emphasis is put on the digitation of nikud where applicable, which is usually omitted in modern Hebrew print. The project is intended to be of use for both amateurs and scholars of literature. It is inspired by Project Gutenberg, started by Michael Hart.

The project was founded in 1999, and a non-profit organization was founded for the project in 2006.
