We are pleased to announce the completion of the Jewish Language

This website is designed to be a resource for Linguists, Jewish

writing of Jewish people throughout history and around the world. It
provides information about 14 Jewish languages:

Hebrew, Jewish Aramaic, Jewish English, Jewish Malayalam,
Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-French, Judeo-Greek, Judeo-Iranian,
Judeo-Italian, Judeo-Persian, Judeo-Portuguese,
Judeo-Proven´┐Żal, Judeo-Spanish/Judezmo/Ladino, and Yiddish

The site presents short descriptions and bibliographies of these
languages written by top researchers, and it provides contact
information for over 50 scholars from 10 countries.

Please contact the editor, Sarah Bunin Benor <> if
you have suggestions or questions.
