  • Jewish History Resource Center(186 clicks)
    The Jewish History Resource Center is a project of the Dinur Center for Research in Jewish History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The site is a general portal for Jewish history, with links to over 6000 sites that are relevant to the field. All sites have been visited by the staff of the Center and deemed relevant to the study of Jewish history. The site is searchable by historical period, from 'Biblical' to 'Modern', and includes a 'Timelines in Jewish History' section, which is unfortunately marred by some defunct links. The site also contains information about the Dinur Center, including lists of completed dissertations at the Hebrew University, which are searchable by subject. The site's newest addition is the Dinur Center Newsletter online in pdf format. Of greatest interest to the researcher is a page devoted to online texts and documents related to Jewish history; this set of primary documents are organised according to time period, from Biblical times to the present. There is also an online historical maps and atlases section that is similarly organised. Together, these resources make the site an important teaching tool. There is further information on lectures, conferences, grants, and professors. The links are categorized according to worldwide academic programs and professional associations in Jewish history, centers and institutions, geneaology, Jewish communities, journals, museums and exhibits, publishers, societies, and women's studies. It is also possible to add links. There is a search tool for both the site and the web. The site features Spanish and Hebrew menus, but no other translations; the translated menus take a long time to load. In general this is a useful site for its wealth of links and easy navigation, and its function as an indispensable resource for researchers, teachers, and students in the whole range of Jewish history.
