The creation of an encyclopedia on the history and culture of Eastern European Jews from their original emigration to the region until 2000. The encyclopedia will be published in print and electronic form.

The YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe will be the definitive reference work for information on all aspects of the history and culture of East European Jews from the beginning of their settlement in the region until 2000. The 1,800 alphabetically arranged entries will be presented so any reader can comprehend the topics in this work of 2 million words, 1,000 illustrations, and 100 maps. Published in partnership with Yale University Press, the encyclopedia will bring together for the first time a new generation of East European scholars with their North American, Israeli, and West European colleagues. We request a two-year, $250,000 grant to support completion of the editorial work and planning and creation of the online edition.
