Encyclopaedia Judaica
2007 PDF 352.5 Mo!fJcTmaDI!Z3M52Gjx3 … jruyerRxUA

The 'Encyclopaedia Judaica' consists of 22 PDF files and somewhere in the area of 15,000 pages. It is a good reference for most things if you want a quick brief on Jewish topics. Each article ends with a bibliographical note (further reading references like books or other sources). The text of a volume can be searched with the search option in Acrobat Reader.

Of course, as is often the case with long running encyclopedias (this one was started in Germany in the late 1920ies) they tend to be slightly conservative. For instance the "hot potatoe" issue of revising the history of Israel's founding in 1948 (connected with the movement of the "New Historians" and "Post-Zionism") is not entioned in a seperate article, nor any the individual new historians themselves (Benny Morris, Ilan Pappé, Avi Shlaim, Tom Segev).

With some heavy competion from online sources like Wikipedia and Wikisources which are expanding daily this encyclopedia faces serious competition.
