The Jewish Language Website has four goals:
To provide an introduction to Jewish languages for the general public
To provide resources and curricular materials for educators about Jewish languages, past and present
To serve as a resource for the field of Jewish linguistics - the study of Jewish languages on an individual and comparative basis - encouraging collaboration among scholars of various Jewish languages
To provide information and bibliographic references for linguists and Jewish studies scholars who wish to incorporate Jewish languages into their research and teaching
