Sources on Judaism

If you're studying Judaism, you might find this site invaluable. It includes primary sources, newspaper articles, artifacts, images, maps, videos, bibliographies, secondary sources and websites. The secondary sources are great. Lawrence H. Schiffman, a professor and writer, wrote most of the secondary material, which is all organized chronologically by time period. Each time period has a short overview, a section on historical background, and usually one on literature and culture. The readings are short enough to copy and use in class for either homework reading assignments or for jigsaw reading.
