Judaica Index is a comprehensive inventory of 200 Jewish ritual objects usually found in synagogues or Jewish homes around the world.

These objects may be used for holidays, lifecycle events, and other religious practices.

Each individual object page includes a brief description of the item and its use, curated images from over 50 collections, references to collections and online catalogues, a specialised bibliography, a video, and navigation options that encourage both targeted research and discovery.

One of the unique features of Judaica Index is the multi-lingual search function available in 15 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Greek, Russian, Hebrew, Arabic, Ladino, and Yiddish). Users can search by object name or keyword and the entries will be regularly enriched and updated.

It is an invaluable tool for researchers, museum and heritage professionals, academics and students, and anybody interested in Judaica from all over the world.

Judaica Index was conceived and developed by Dr Brigitte Sion, museum grants manager at the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe.
