Welcome to Sefa Turah Yoruba sites!

Thanks for joining me!

My research foundation is named after Sefa Turah (Ese Ifa Oturah) known in modern Hebrew as sefa turah/torah. Sefa Turah is one of the 256 verses of Daodu Ifa meedogun (Magen David, Dovid) sacred scrolls.  

The ideal of the Sefa Turah foundation is to enlighten people on the heritage of ancient Yoruba beginning from the source, Ile Ifeh and how it influenced the world.  Translating the book of Udaiyeh kini and keyin (first and last book of Judah) now known as old and new testaments bible and the book of Ipe-Ire-Salami, Pesalami, Pesalam (Psalms) would be gradually translated from Yoruba.

Translations are taken from Habarawa (Hebrew) Oranmiyan. Sefa Turah Research translations of the sacred books are in progress
