Jewish Law - משפט עברי
Online Responsa ProjectThe Responsa Project began in 1963 at the Weizmann Institute. Over the years it migrated to Bar Ilan University. An early version of the system was already running in 1967.
In the first stages of the project, we decided to focus on the Responsa literature. Jews have traditionally asked their local rabbis for advice on almost every subject. Many of the resulting questions and answers were collected in books. These responsa accordingly contain numerous halachic, historical, sociological and economic data which reflect approximately one thousand years of the Jewish life. Due to the quantity of this material, a special committee was established to set priorities about which texts to include in the database, in light of their relevance, scope and accessibility.
Data entry has been going on for more than thirty years. Initially the system ran in batch mode on an IBM mainframe. Later, from 1979, it also became usable in a time-sharing mode from terminals on the Bar-Ilan campus, as well as from a growing number of terminals off-campus, even from outside Israel. At that time this was no small technological feat.
In 1990, following the development of the CD-ROM, the immense database was compressed into a single compact disk, and presently the system can be installed on almost any personal computer. Version 1.0 of the new system was completed in late 1992, while the online version was released in 2007.
RAMBIRAMBI – The Index of Articles on Jewish Studies – was founded by Dr. Issachar Joel in 1966. It is a selective bibliography of academic articles covering all of the fields of Jewish studies as well as the study of Eretz Israel and the State of Israel.
RAMBI is based largely on the collections of the National Library. The articles listed in RAMBI are collected from thousands of journals, in print or electronic, from collections of articles and from offprints sent by researchers.
RAMBI refers to articles in Hebrew, Latin or Cyrillic letters. The database is updated on a daily basis. By the end of 2013 RAMBI included about 350,000 records, from about 21,000 different sources.
The Jewish Legal Heritage SocietyThe goal of The Jewish Legal Heritage Society is to promote the understanding of Jewish law and its contribution to modern society. From Biblical times to the present, Jewish law has been a vital and dynamic force in the cultural and moral development of the Jewish people and society. This is true not only in Israel itself, but throughout the Jewish communities in the Diaspora. Jewish legal tradition has and continues to play an important role throughout the world. Today, its unique evolution, its continued refinement, and its unsurpassed sensitivity to the values of justice and morality have resulted in it having a significant role in modern jurisprudence throughout the world, and has had profound influence on most all legal systems of the world, from ancient times until today. In the Jewish people's quest to fashion a humanistic Israeli policy rooted in the fundamental values and principles of our Jewish cultural heritage, the Jewish legal tradition plays a pivotal role. The Jewish Legal Heritage Society (JLHS) is dedicated to building a modern democratic society guided by the rich traditions of Jewish law. We believe that the only way of meeting this challenge is by working toward this goal within a contemporary pluralistic framework. We believe that the treasures of the Jewish legal tradition are the shared heritage of the entire Jewish nation, and as such, it is a primary goal of The Jewish Legal Heritage Society to acquaint and educate the broadest possible audience. In its efforts to introduce Jewish law to the public, The Jewish Legal Heritage Society devotes special attention to those areas of law which relate to moral and cultural values. Once the law of the entire Jewish people, Jewish law has reemerged to play a formative role in the Israeli legal system. Not surprisingly, since the inception of Israeli law it has founded numerous legal precedents originating in Jewish legal tradition. Similarly, on numerous occasions, the Knesset has adopted both the terminology and substance of Jewish law in its legislation. For example, the Bailees Law, the Copyright Law, and the Criminal Registration Law are each patterned after Jewish law in its traditional formulation.

Oxford English DictionaryThe Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is widely regarded as the accepted authority on the English language. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words— past and present—from across the English-speaking world.
As a historical dictionary, the OED is very different from dictionaries of current English, in which the focus is on present-day meanings. You’ll still find present-day meanings in the OED, but you’ll also find the history of individual words, and of the language—traced through 3 million quotations, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books.
The OED started life more than 150 years ago. Today, the dictionary is in the process of its first major revision. Updates revise and extend the OED at regular intervals, each time subtly adjusting our image of the English language.
