The Bible Valley Society is a nonprofit organization that develops and runs global interfaith initiatives focused around the Bible.
Founded by Amos Rolnik, the Bible Valley has its origins in a project he initiated in 1997 - Children of the World Illustrate the Bible. A competition launched to mark the state of Israel's 50th anniversary, it drew an overwhelming response - 800,000 unique paintings of Bible scenes were submitted by children of all ages and religions, from 91 different countries.
In 2006, the Bible Valley Society embarked on a far-reaching initiative, People of the World Inscribe the Bible. It was a simple yet profound idea: to inscribe the Bible in 100 languages. Each 'scribe' hand-writes one verse of a Bible launched in his/her native tongue. Over 25 Bibles have already been completed, and dozens more continue to be written.
In 2011, the Bible Valley Society launched Tanakh b'Mirshetet ("Bible on the Net") in conjunction with various Israeli government ministries. Similar in concept to People of the World Inscribe the Bible, this initiative harnesses the awesome power of technology through the first ever Internet bible transcription. The first version – in Hebrew – is well under way, and four others are slated to be launched – in English, French, Spanish, and Russian.
