The second phase of the Judaica-Europeana (www.judaica-europeana.eu) has been selected for funding by the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) under its
Connecting Europe programme, CEF Telecom. Judaica Europeana 2.0 continues the aggregation of Jewish heritage materials and will greatly increase and enhance digitised Jewish heritage materials available for re-use in
education, research, tourism and leisure.
JudaicaLink will collaborate by providing a knowledge graph for contextualization. We look forward to our further collaborations.

With the continues efforts of our team towards expanding JudaicaLink datasets and resources, another dataset, Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner (Biographical handbook of Rabbis) has been added to JudaicaLink. The Biographisches Handbuch der Rabbiner is an online encyclopedia provided by the Salomon L. Steinheim-Institute for German-Jewish history at the University of Duisburg-Essen, edited by Michael Brocke and Julius Carlebach. This dataset currently contains 2900 persons, with their names, date and place of birth and death, GND-ID, and occupation when available.

We are happy to announce that two new datasets, list of Jewish persons from GND and list of Jewish persons from DBpedia, are added to JudaicaLink datasets. There are knowledge bases which contain a vast variety of information including facts related to Jewish culture and history. Two of the most comprehensive ones are DBpedia and GND. However such general-purpose resources are hard to use due to their sheer size while only a very small subset of the data is actually relevant.
