Austria, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project
The project aiming at identifying and describing medieval Hebrew fragments in Austrian libraries and archives was initiated in 1992 by Prof. Ferdinand Dexinger (University of Vienna), in cooperation with the Austrian Academy of Science. Out of the estimated 3000 fragments, some 1.500 fragments have been digitized, around 800 are already published at the website (http://www.ksbm.oeaw.ac.at/hebraica/) Since October 2008 the project is run by Prof. Martha Keil (Institute for Jewish History in Austria).
