Less than a year after the Unicode Consortium added a bagel to its set of official emoji, a Jewish organization is starting a campaign to introduce a Torah emoji.
Sefaria, which hosts a humongous library of Jewish texts, including the Talmud, on its website, announced this week that it will file an official request to add a Torah scroll to the library of tiny images people put in text messages.
But in the spirit of interactivity, Sefaria is seeking input on what kind of Torah image to request. An open Torah scroll? An open Torah scroll at an angle? A Sephardi-style Torah scroll open in a case? Or a closed Torah scroll in a blue cover?
Readers can cast their votes on Sefaria’s Facebook page or at http://bit.ly/torahchoice.
