Project Ben-Yehuda (PBY) is a volunteer driven initiative, established in 1999 by Israeli software developer Asaf Bartov. The project strives to digitally conserve the treasures of Hebrew literature, creating an online library of Hebrew works that are available to the public for free, without advertising.

The project’s main goals are to preserve Hebrew works, to make them accessible to the public, and to expose them to new readers, encouraging engagement with them. The website is frequented by students, researchers, teachers, and all manner of literature lovers, with over 70,000 visitors each month. Such contact with the literature of former generations is crucial for a rich, living Hebrew culture.
