Jewish Studies: General Info

Resources of general interest on the topic.

What's in the Guide

 Welcome to the Jewish Studies Guide. This guide, created by Chief Librarian Pamela Gillespie (now retired) and now curated, maintained and updated by me, Philip Barnett, provides links to the most useful article databases, books, and web sites for Jewish Studies. Use the tabs to navigate through the pages of this guide. Nearly all of these sources are free to all. The ones available only to City College students, faculty and staff by subscription are noted with square CUNY or CCNY icons.
Feel free to contact me (see right side of screen) with any comments or suggestions.
