  • Jewish Encyclopedia Online
    Contains the complete contents of the 12-volume Jewish Encyclopedia, which was originally published 1901-1906. Since the original work was completed over 100 years ago it does not cover a significant portion of modern Jewish history (e.g., the creation of Israel, the Holocaust, etc.). However, it does contain an incredible amount of information that is remarkably relevant today.
  • Judaism and Jewish Resources
    Gateway to resources on Jewish religion and culture. Includes e-texts, e-journals, newsgroups, current news on Israel, links to museums and libraries, and Chasidic resources.
  • Judaism: Beliefs and practices.
    Judaism is an Abrahamic religion -- faiths which recognize Abraham as a Patriarch. Others include Christianity Islam, and the Baha'i Faith. Although Jews comprise only about 0.2% of the human race, they have had a vast and positive influence on the world.
