Editor: Shlomo Simonsohn z"l

The lexicon covers the history of all the Jewish communities in Italy, from the Roman era through the Emancipation, and is intended for use by scholars and students, as well as interested members of the public. It is accompanied by a bibliography based on the six published volumes, and is brought up to date continuously by the editorial board and by the public.

The Lexicon is presented in Italian, but it is accessible through the Google Chrome browser to provide translation into Hebrew, English, and a number of other languages. Scholars from Israel and abroad contributed entries under the editorship of Prof. Shlomo Simonsohn, and the site will operate under the auspices of the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Research Center of Tel Aviv University. The site's editorial board consists of Italian and Israeli historians. An updated Bibliography accompanies the Lexicon. The possibility of expanding the project to include additional activities—like tours of Jewish Italy, films on Jewish communities in Italy past and present, lecture series, publications, and conferences are envisaged as the project continues.
