“We are a large congregation with a lay-led Full Kriah. Managing our Torah readers is a substantial task, but having the Torah Readers app as both cut down on the amount of administrative time we need to dedicate to this task, as well as empowered our engaged readers, young and old, to look at and explore new readings as they grow their skills. The small learning curve has been well worthwhile, and Gideon’s customer service and ability to make modifications to the app to meet the needs of user congregations has been phenomenal. This is Torah reading for the 21st Century!”

"This is fantastic!! Using TorahReaders has made it significantly easier for congregants to both reserve and prepare their readings. On the backend, I have been able to dramatically reduce the amount of time needed to manage this overall process."
