Yale’s Posen Digital Library Brings Jewish Culture Online

Yale University Press has launched the Posen Digital Library, which makes available online the artworks, literary works, and artifacts from The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization.

Created by Yale University Press and the Posen Foundation, the 10-volume Posen Library collects the best of Jewish culture from throughout the ages, from biblical times to the present. The first volume, covering the period from 1973 to 2005, was published in print in November, 2012. James E. Young, professor of English and Judaic studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is the Posen Library’s editor-in-chief.

“The Posen Library is a treasure trove for anyone interested in Jewish culture and ideas. We are so pleased to partner with the Posen Foundation to make its riches available to all,” said John Donatich, director of Yale University Press.

Felix Posen, president of the Posen Foundation, said, “The Posen Digital Library serves our mission — to make a Jewish education available to eager and curious minds — especially well. We’re immensely proud that anyone, anywhere can access these Jewish cultural treasures.”
