Welcome to JSN, an affiliate of Hebrew College and Shamash. Our H-Judaic network has been a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online since 1993. JSN is one of the oldest Internet projects in the humanities, initially operating as Judaica/He'Asif, starting in February 1989, operating out of Jerusalem using mailing list services at Tel Aviv U. From 1991-93 the network was at the University of Minnesota.
With 3,000 subscribers worldwide, JSN is the premier digital source concerning Judaica and the academic study and discussion of Judaism ancient, mediaeval, and modern. All services of JSN are provided free of charge.
