Bibliography Bank

The Bibliography Bank was created to facilitate the sharing of bibliographies on Judaic topics among AJL members and the public at large. All bibliographies included in the Bank are available as PDF files. They appear in date order, but can be rearranged by title, author, or age level by clicking on the various tabs. It is recommended that key word searches or subjects be searched in Search box. The recommendations made in these bibliographies are the opinions of the compilers, and not necessarily the views of AJL.

To submit a bibliography, please send a PDF file to Laura Schutzman at
