Cookbooks: Preserving Jewish Tradition, Daniel E. Feinberg, Alice Crosetto 2011 University of Toledo

Cookbooks: Preserving Jewish Tradition, Daniel E. Feinberg, Alice Crosetto

Judaica Librarianship

Culinary traditions have played an integral role in the Jewish religion from its very beginning. Families have continually passed down these traditions from one generation to the next as a means to preserve Jewish culture as well as to maintain their Jewish identity. The authors propose that one of the methods of preserving and transmitting these culinary traditions, traditions clearly rooted in oral tradition, has been through the cookbook. While the written cookbook continues to be popular and marketable, traditional cookbook contents are becoming increasingly available online. In saving recipes for future generations, cookbooks preserve religious, cultural, and traditional elements ...


Rabbinics In The New Encyclopaedia Judaica, Eliezer Diamond 2011 Association of Jewish Libraries

Rabbinics In The New Encyclopaedia Judaica, Eliezer Diamond

Judaica Librarianship

There have been significant advances in almost every branch of rabbinic scholarship since the publication of the first edition of Encyclopaedia Judaica (hereafter: EJ1). It was the task of the contributors to Encyclopaedia Judaica’s second edition (hereafter: EJ2) to summarize these advances in a concise yet comprehensive fashion. My role as reviewer is to highlight the advances mentioned in EJ2, to supplement each entry with scholarship that was not mentioned, and, on occasion, critique the style and/or substance of an entry. The latter is done with the full knowledge that it is no easy task to write an ...

Isaac Edward Kiev (1905–1975), former Chief Librarian of New York’s Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, spent a lifetime facilitating Jewish research.

In addition to providing insight into the creation of these associations, the article illustrates the parallel development of the fields ...

The Changing Terms In Sears, Sara Rofofsky Marcus 2011 Association of Jewish Libraries

The Changing Terms In Sears, Sara Rofofsky Marcus

Judaica Librarianship

Librarians are considered the keepers of knowledge. However, the very method in which this knowledge is kept can cause confusion, not only for patrons seeking the knowledge held, but also for librarians unfamiliar with methods used in classifying books. Changing terms, or terms that do not change and thus portray what today could be considered bias or prejudice, cause confusion or even embarrassment in searching the vast knowledge base available. Librarians are known for organizational work, particularly catalogers who organize knowledge in the library into a seemingly accessible order. This article focuses on selected concepts of importance to the Judaic ...

Judaica Librarianship

The Nahum Stutchkoff collection in the Dorot Jewish Division of The New York Public Library contains Yiddish translations, plays, song lyrics, and radio programs created by Yiddish linguist and playwright Nahum Stutchkoff (1893–1965). This article describes the collection in the context of the Jewish Division’s holdings, using bibliographic details about his known works to trace Stutchkoff’s career as a Yiddish actor, translator, director, playwright, and linguist. Stutchkoff’s radio scripts in particular provide rare documentation of the golden era of Yiddish radio explored by Henry Sapoznik and Ari Y. Kelman. A detailed bibliography of Stutchkoff’s published ...

Encyclopedia Interrupta, Or Gale’S Unfinished: The Scandal Of The Ej2, Barry D. Walfish

Judaica Librarianship

Encyclopedias are important reference works. They are meant to summarize the state of knowledge in any given field and convey it to both the layperson and the scholar in a clear, concise manner. For Jews and Judaism, the first major effort in this regard was the Jewish Encyclopedia of 1906, which drew upon the knowledge of a cadre of European and American scholars of the Science of Judaism (Wissenschaft des Judentums). Its successor the German Encyclopaedia Judaica began to appear in 1929 but was interrupted in 1934 by the rise of Nazism. It had only reached the end of the ...
