The Jewish Virtual Library (JVL) is your source for information about Jewish history, Israel, U.S.-Israel relations, the Holocaust, anti-Semitism, and Judaism. The JVL currently has more than 25,000 articles and 10,000 images and is accessed by users in more than 230 countries and territories worldwide.
The JVL is not just a historical archive – it is also the place to find talking points and factual analysis on the most important news stories. When an issue comes to the fore and you need data fast, the JVL is the first place you should look.
The JVL purposely avoids links with other sites so as to make this a one-stop shop for information. Our goal is to provide the basic information you need and we have purposely kept most of the entries brief to make them more digestible. Some will provide all the information you need, others should be viewed as a starting point. We stick to the facts and make as many primary sources and original documents available as possible.
