"Responsa" Project


Bar-Ilan Judaic Responsa


Bar-Ilan's Responsa Project CD-ROM and Online Database includes the largest electronic collection of keyed-in and proofread texts of Jewish literature in the world; it is also one of the greatest Jewish projects carried out in history.

The texts cover thousands of years of writing, from the Bible and the Talmud, through the Midrash and Halacha, the literature of the Geonim, the Rambam (Maimonides), Shulhan Aruch and their commentators, to the adjudicators of our time.

This project, which is one of the brightest jewels in Bar-Ilan University's crown, commenced approximately 35 years ago. At present, three decades later during which 300 man years were invested in the development of algorithms, keying-in texts and proofreading them, it has become a veritable treasure that is accessible to all, presented on one special CD-ROM or a searchable online database.

The textual database includes approximately 180 million words and more than 70,000 precedents in Jewish law, and is combined with highly advanced search software.
