  Product Description
The principle guiding the editors of Encyclopedia Judaica
2nd Edition was to retain the broad, solid foundations of the
original edition while giving a voice to the present generation.
Designed to provide easy access to information, the twenty
two volumes include:
■ Extensive cross-referencing
■ Large subject index
■ Place name lists
■ Chronology
■ Lists of newspapers and periodicals
■ Illustrations, including more than 600 maps,
charts, tables and photographs
■ Entry-specific bibliographies
With more than 22,000 signed entries on Jewish life, culture,
history and religion, this new edition incorporates over three
decades of changes and the latest scholarship – such as new
archaeological sites, theories, and analytical methodologies.
About the Second Edition
New Colour Section
in Every Volume
Featuring original work by leading scholars representing all
major universities and centres of research in Jewish studies,
this invaluable 22 volume set expands the scope and relevance
of the original edition, with some 2,200 brand-new entries,
many focusing on gender issues and New World geographic
areas of the United States, Canada and Latin America.
The classical writers of the first edition remain fully
represented – the integrity and vision of their essays
have been measured against the significance of new
perspectives. Often an addendum updates an original
entry to reflect more recent scholarship.
The Encyclopedia Judaica combines the old with the new
to celebrate the achievements of Jews and illuminate their
history, culture and knowledge.
