Database: RAMBI Index of Articles on Judaic Studies

Description: RAMBI is a database that indexes articles on Jewish Studies. RAMBI allows you to search for Authors, Titles, Subjects and Keywords. Searches can be performed in English or Hebrew. If your computer supports Hebrew fonts you can toggle back and forth between languages by pressing Alt/Shift. Searches done in English will return results in Roman languages only. Searches done in Hebrew will return only Hebrew results. RAMBI is an index, not a full-text database.
