New Resource – Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia

The Jewish Women’s Archive is proud to announce the launch of the online version of Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia, originally produced by Alice and Moshe Shalvi of Shalvi Publishing Ltd.

This new resource will be available for free at http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/ beginning March 1, 2009. Previously available only on CD-ROM, the Encyclopedia is the first comprehensive source on Jewish women. It features over 1,700 biographies, 300 thematic essays, and 1,400 photographs and illustrations. Never before has so much well-researched and well-written material about Jewish women been available in one place online.

 If you are interested in participating in the Preview/Beta, please email adavidow@jwa.org; if you would like to get a sense of who is in the Encyclopedia, or to find out more, please visit http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/preview.
