  • 2. RAMBI Index of Articles on Jewish Studies

    RAMBI is selective bibliography of articles in the various fields of Jewish studies and in the study of Israel. Material listed is compiled from thousands of periodicals and from collections of articles monographs - in Hebrew, Yiddish, and European languages- mainly from the holdings of the Jewish National and University Library, a world center for research on the Jewish people and Israel. The main criterion for inclusion in the bibliography is that the article be based on scientific research, or contain important information for such research. Since the inception of this bibliographic project in 1966, the editorial board has striven to include in it all of the important articles published throughout the world in the field of Judaica. Therefore, it includes offprints of articles from journals or collections not on order to the Library. Rambi also lists articles from secondary sources.
