History of the Encyclopedia Judaica
Nahum Goldman's Eshkol Publishing Society in Berlin
began publication of a comprehensive reference work on
the history and culture of the Jewish people. The
German-language Encyclopaedia Judaica was never
finished due to the Nazi takeover of power.
The original, pre-war ten volumes (Aach to Lyra) of
the first Encyclopaedia Judaica stand today as an
evocative and tragic reminder of the barbarism of
Hitler's Germany, enduring as a testament to the
intellect and spirit of European Jewry.
Goldman was the last surviving member of the editorial
board of the German-language Encyclopaedia Judaica.
Using funds he received as reparations, he helped
revive the Encyclopaedia Judaica, this time in Israel.
Work began on the project in 1966 at Keter Publishing
House in Jerusalem.
In 1972, more than 45 years after it was begun, the
first completed English language edition of
Encyclopaedia Judaica was finally released by Keter
and Macmillan Reference USA. Like its unfinished
predecessor, this Encyclopaedia aimed to provide an
exhaustive and organized overview of Jewish life and
knowledge. The 16-volume set was hailed as 'a work of
transcendent value' by Choice magazine and as "an
indispensable reference tool" by the Library Journal
The American Library Association named the
Encyclopaedia Judaica a 'major reference work of the
20th century.' Now the second edition is here to serve
as a rich source of information on Jewish thought and
knowledge for a new century and a new generation.
