Text is in Yiddish. Volumes One through Five were part of a project to create a general encyclopedia in Yiddish. Starting in 1939 the project was reimagined and retooled to become a Yiddish language enyclopedia of Jewish history and culture. It was begun pre-War Paris and continued in New York by Israel London, printer and publisher. Some of the volumes are first printing and the rest are second printings.
