Entire 12 volumes of "Jewish Encyclopedia" now online #rabbinic


Dear Fellow Rav-SIGgers,

A fellow genealogist and I discovered this new web site today:


This is >from the introduction to site:

"This website contains the complete contents of the 12-volume Jewish
Encyclopedia, which was originally published between 1901-1906. The
Jewish Encyclopedia, which recently became part of the public
domain, contains over 15,000 articles and illustrations.

This online version contains the unedited contents of the original
encyclopedia. Since the original work was completed almost 100 years
ago, it does not cover a significant portion of modern Jewish
History (e.g., the creation of Israel, the Holocaust, etc.)..."

The entire text is searchable. Images may be located by searching
for text in the captions. Enjoy!
