Participant Collections

The ITALYA Books project is a collaboration of many institutions and communities, who together have enabled us to accomplish this ambitious undertaking. Behind each collection are dedicated and devoted staff and volunteers , who have worked hard to find and bring together their collections of Hebrew printed books, and to prepare them for inclusion in the project.

We want to especially thank all those who, despite very difficult circumstances during the pandemic, continued to carry out their work with diligence and dedication, enabling us to achieve the project goals.

The map below shows the scope of the ITALYA Books project by region across Italy. For each selected region, the individual collections and their status in the project are displayed.
