Jewish Language Projectjewishlanguages.org
The HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project promotes research on, awareness about, and engagement surrounding the many languages spoken and written by Jews throughout history and around the world, from Ladino and Yiddish to Judeo-Arabic and Judeo-Malayalam. Since we launched in 2020, over 1.5 million people have visited our websites, and we have reached thousands of others through online events, videos, and educational social media posts. We have also convened organizations and scholars to document endangered Jewish languages and created collaborative dictionaries for emerging Jewish languages.
The Jewish Language Project was launched in 2020, building on and encompassing several projects led by Professor Sarah Bunin Benor. Several people contributed to the curation of Jewish Language Project exhibits, including Sarah Bunin Benor, Eden Moyal, Abby Graham, Hannah Pressman, Alan Niku, Isaac Mayer, Evgeniya Gutova, Jacob Kodner, Gittel Marcus, Ian Pomerantz, and Julia Hananel.
