New Encyclopedia Features Jewish Women

A new encyclopedia by Israel Prize winner Prof. Alice Shalvi and her husband Moshe focuses on the accomplishments of Jewish women. Under the title of Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia, the volume offers information on women's contributions to society throughout history.

Moshe Shalvi commented that existing references contain relatively little data on women. The 3.2 million-word encyclopedia contains more than 2,000 entries including biographies and articles on Jewish women from the Bible to modern times.
