Users should not interpret the presence or lack of material as a reflection of any particular bias. Many entries are included because of their availability. For example, very few biographies of Jewish women were immediately available to us. More will be added. Similarly, material from some religious movements and political groups was more plentiful than others. Entries will also be updated as new data is received. In addition, we plan to gradually add more pictures, maps, charts and other materials to provide more information and improve the overall look of the site. We also intend to create extensive hypertext links to allow users to quickly move from document to document and to check definitions and biographies.
The process of archiving material relating to nearly 6,000 years of Jewish history has just begun. What you can't find today is likely to be here the next time you visit the Jewish Virtual Library. You can even help decide what should be included by using the form below to suggest topics. Also, if you would like to work with us to prepare new materials, we are going to be looking for writers and researchers to make contributions.
Thank you for visiting the Jewish Virtual Library, the source for facts about Jewish history and current affairs.
