Encyclopedia Judaica Online

Encyclopedia Judaica Online

The landmark Encyclopaedia Judaica, lauded as the standard work on Judaism since first appearing in print in the early 1970s, has been extensively revised and expanded for this new online edition. Included are more than 21,000 signed entries on Jewish life, culture, history and religion, written by Israeli, American and European subject specialists. More than 600 maps, charts, tables, photographs, illustrations and other visuals concisely illustrate key textual elements.
