Jewish Book Search!

Posted by Naomi Firestone

Another fine JPS creation…the Jewish Book Search tool:

Jewish Book Search

We have put together a list of the highest quality websites with Jewish Book content. This search engine queries those sites and those alone. This will allow you to be sure that your search will only be related to Jewish Books. No more sifting through tons of content for what you are looking for. Search for any and all Jewish Books, articles about Jewish Books, blogs about Jewish Books, and anything about the Jewish Book world. Search by title, author, keyword, or area of interest!

To read the complete post, please click here.

We’ve add the Jewish Book Search tool to our own website and it can be found under the Resources section.

A new (very cool) Jewish book blog, the Jewish Book Search tool, The Tagged Tanakh…keep those great ideas coming JPS!
