The European Jewish Research Archive (EJRA) is a new online repository of research on European Jewish communities that has been published since 1990. Free to use, it has been generously funded by the Rothschild Foundation (Hanadiv) Europe and collated and hosted by the Institute for Jewish Policy Research.

It includes records of reports, journal articles, books and other materials that discuss contemporary Jewish life in Europe, and contains items written in any European language (as well as some in Hebrew), accompanied by translations into English of key information where possible. A freely downloadable pdf for each item is included in the archive whenever possible.

EJRA works in close collaboration with the Berman Jewish Policy Archive, a US-based online repository of research on contemporary Jewish communities and communal policy. Users of both EJRA and BJPA can, if they wish, search both archives from the search page.

EJRA is an on-going project and we are adding new records all the time. You can help us both by making people aware of its existence, and by providing us with information about sources that are not currently included. In addition, you can help us by -
