"This revision of the 1972 print set is a landmark achievement, boasting 21,000 articles by an international team of scholars. Some 2,600 articles are new to this edition, while 12,000 other articles have been revised and 30,000 bibliographical listings added. Winner of this year's Dartmouth Medal, this U.S.-Israeli collaboration seems likely to become the seminal reference for all things Jewish."

"...this is a work of tremendous scholarship and importance. Students and scholars of Jewish studies and the librarians serving them have been waiting for years for this resource to be updated and digitized."

"EJ2 complements but does not supplant EJ1, and libraries owning the first edition should shelve the two sets together so they are easily accessible. Essential. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers."

"Students and scholars of Jewish studies and the librarians serving them have been waiting for years for this resource to be digitized. Strongly recommended for all libraries."

"This updated edition of the classic Encyclopaedia Judaica will be an essential purchase for large academic libraries and some public libraries. With 22 large volumes (over 17,000 pages in all) and weighing in at over 70 pounds, libraries with limited space may choose to go with the e-book only. Regardless of the format selected, this resource remains an essential purchase for the study of the history and current condition of Judaism around the world."
