Encyclopedia of Jewish Women Call for Entries for New Edition #general


Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Women's Archive (JWA) announces the upcoming edition of the
Encyclopedia of Jewish Women. The encyclopedia will be renamed Shalvi/Hyman
Encyclopedia of Jewish Women in honor of Israeli feminist Alice Shalvi and
in memory of pioneering Jewish historian Paula Hyman and publisher Moshe
Shalvi.

The Encyclopedia is the world's largest source of information on Jewish
women. While they plan to include women in all fields they are particularly
interested in Sephardi and Mizrahi women, LGBTQ Jews and others not
previously noticed.

They are inviting all to suggest a woman or a topic to be featured in the
new edition of the Encyclopedia. To suggest an entry go to:

To view the Encyclopedia see: https://jwa.org/encyclopedia It is free on
the website of the Jewish Women's Archive.
