Judaic Studies: Web Sites

A general introduction to library resources that support Judaic Studies.

Note on Free Web Sites

Some basic web sites are listed throughout this guide, but rapid change in web based resources make such information out-of-date very quickly.

Please take note:

  • Controversial and/or unreliable web information is exceedingly common.  
  • ALWAYS consult your instructor before citing web sites in your work.
  • Popular resources like Wikipedia are often useful in the very first stages of research but be sure to move beyond them at the first opportunity.
  • Most instructors are reluctant to approve Wikiepdia citations in your paper itself.
