The Global Jewish Database (the Responsa Project) contains the world's largest electronic collection of Jewish texts in Hebrew.. The database includes numerous works from the Responsa Literature - rabbinic case-law rulings which represent the historical-sociological milieu of real-life situations.
These works ranging from 15th century incunabula to 20th century books, are the first to be digitized as part of a larger project to make publically available many rare and out-of-print monographs from the JNUL collection. [Download a plug-in to use.]
"The purpose of this Digitized Ladino Library is to place on the Internet a corpus of Ladino printed books, or even a few manuscripts, for easy access by scholars as well as students of Ladino throughout the world. I had already worked on a number of Ladino books in the past and I was delighted when Professor Rodrigue wished to include these books in this new series." Introduction to project - Isaac Jerusalmi, Professor of Bible and Semitic Languages, Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati, Ohio
"The project "Digitization of Yiddish Books" covers the safety-filming of this very valuable and rare historic collection of about 800 Yiddish books and offers to the public access for scientific use via the Internet. The "Yiddish Prints" collection is remarkable for its completeness, the impressive number of extremely rare books and several unique editions. The texts were printed in Hebrew letters in West, Central and East Europe. The dates range from the middle of the 16th century to the beginning of the 20th century." --Project homepage
Translated from the German manuscript by Henrietta Szolt. Legends of the Jews is an original synthesis of a vast amount of aggadah from all of classical rabbinic literature, as well as apocryphal, pseudopigraphical and even early Christian literature. Ginzberg had an encyclopedic knowledge of all rabbinic literature, and his masterwork included a massive array of aggadot. However he did not create an anthology which showed these aggadot distinctly. Rather, he paraphrased them and rewrote them into one continuous narrative that covered four volumes, followed by two volumes of footnotes that give specific sources. -- Wikipedia.
