Books & Publications

 

Many books, articles and other publications deal with Jewish heritage issues in Europe and elsewhere. We will be assembling here an expanding bibliography of popular and scholarly publications more or less directly related to issues of Jewish built heritage, preservation and display. You will find more country-specific publications on the individual country pages.

In addition, many Jewish Archives or Archives and Libraries with Jewish holdings have web sites, often with searchable bibliographies and databases. The website bibliomaven.com has a clickable listing of many of them, arranged by continent and country.

And the rachelnet.net web site, a partner of the Bibliothèque Nationale of France, is an online catalogue of the European Network of Judaica and Hebraica Libraries and one of the foremost bibliographic sources in the field of Jewish culture. It contains 200,000 entries, representing the holdings of the member libraries.

We will be featuring notices of new publications (and occasional book reviews) in the “In Focus” section of the web site — and we welcome information about new books and other publications, including online works.

While our current focus is primarily on English-language publications, the individual country pages and the bibliographic lists include works in other languages.
