Thread: Jastrow

  1. #1

    Default Jastrow

    I brought this up back in February, I thought I raise it again.

    What about adding Jastrow's Dictionary of the Targumim,
    the Talmud Babli and Yerushalmi, and the Midrashic Literature?
    It's online in .pdf form from Etana.

    I assume that means the copyright has run out, but I don't know.

    Given the addition of the the Targumim and DSS, this would be a great addition.

    How much interest is there?

    Default Very

    I would like to see it included as well.

    The copyright notice on the website indicates 1903, so it should be public domain.

    There is a very nice chart that explains the "basics" (nothing on this topic is basic) on copyright and when items pass into Public Domain @ http://www.copyright.cornell.edu/tra...lic_Domain.htm

    Yes, it would be a major benefit of this was available in BibleWorks. I am starting to use the QST/QSM modules and the Targumim much more now, so Jastrow is becoming an increasing useful resource. The difficulty would be entering the text electronically - any suggestions? If enough people scanned/OCR'd/typed a few tens of pages each, it would be available!

    Regards,

    I agree that this should be brought into the system. It's indispensible.

    My main interest is Hebrew Bible, Talmud and post-Talmudic Hebrew literature, so anything that nudges the program into that universe sounds great to me.

    I would be more than happy to OCR and type some to get this out and available to us.

    Default users doing work

    If someone double checks w BW staff to make sure this isn't on their docket of things to do, i am sure they wouldn't mind users making things like this available. I know when I emailed Mike about something he said they had a lot of irons on the fire and it would be awhile. So if you're anxious and your hands are capable, this would be something great to work on
