It would be great to add Soncino's Midrash Rabbah (soncino.com) that is already in digital format via Davka Software (davka.com).  It would be great to add Soncino's Books of the Bible Commentary Set too.

Artscroll (artscroll.com) is also digitizing their books including Talmud and Shulchan Aruch.  Would be great to make these digital books into Logos Resources.

Great idea.

Wondering if Logos monitors this page or if the request should be done elsewhere?

Have you gotten any feedback from them?

Generally no

G. Jorge Medina:

There is a forum, an email address and a uservoice site on which requests are formally made and assured to get "on the list".

No, and none is particularly expected when there is no specifically Jewish products manager although there may occasionally be a comment from the Noet manager ...

Unfortunately, I find that most Christians do not understand the brilliance of a Jewish Messiah and instead insist that Acts meant we need not bother with anything Jewish. Some of these people will even eat blood sausage even though Acts clearly states that Christians should not be eating blood. lol My point is that the Majority wins at the expense of the minority, resulting in more Jews not becoming saved because of the Christian insisting on a "non-Jewish" Jesus. This translates as "why should we have these resources here? We aren't Jewish!"

Why indeed? It is only when you discover that "shinantam" actually means "sharpen" that you learn how we are to treat God's word as it applies to our brain. (It refers to kitchen knives that become dull after use, so you have to sharpen them, use them and repeat over and over again).  It is usually translated as "teach" which means that you can treat God's word like the Quadratic Equation, Completing the Square or Big Pi. When is the last time you had to do these math equation types after you took that test so long ago? My point exactly! Teach means that unless our job requires it (or our hobby), we will never see those questions again outside of divine intervention. Sharpen means we should actively seek out those same questions over and over again whereby the questions means here, God's Holy word. 

It is also only when you realize that "Yeshayahu" (Isaiah) actually means "Yeshua Yehovah" that you see how the vast majority of everyone missed the extreme obvious! This means that God the Father sent down a part of Him, in the form of spirit that went into cells whereby he grew skin and bones around himself until he created a human being. He then caused it to keep growing until he became a grown man and died upon the quick growing tree with a rod across. (And no, I am not offended by the term "cross" because it is way easier to say! lol ) FYI Traditional Jews believe that "we" aren't holy enough to say His name properly is why its "yahu". I believe that the same applies to "Yeshua" which is why its "yesha".   Anywho...time for me to do something else. Blessings!

There are some points you're making there that have nothing to do with getting those resources on Logos. I can only gently suggest that you refer to the forum guidelines here: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/10072.aspx

In truth, those points you make resonate with a good number of folks who use Logos. I am also friends with a number of people who have devoted their lives to the very things you speak of. That said, those subjects are more appropriate elsewhere.
