About Cairo Genizah

The Friedberg Genizah Research Project is a comprehensive project that one of its most important goals is to computerize the Cairo Genizah. The project's website includes more than 450,000 high-quality digital images of manuscripts from the Cairo Genizah, and for many of them, there is related information such as identification, catalogs published, transliterations, joins and bibliographical references. By presenting this information, any site visitor can get all the known published information about the requested item.

Genizah researchers or scholars in Jewish studies or related study fields, can register to the website, view information and enter new information themselves. The site is developed and maintained by "Genazim", the computing unit of the Friedberg Genizah Project, led by Professor Yaacov Choueka.

The Genzaim mobile app enables one to view the Genizah manuscripts on mobile devices. Access images by browsing libraries' shelfmarks or by entering shelfmark or image FGP number. The application includes basic image processing functions such as zooming in and zooming out.

The app requires individual username and password. If you don’t have one already, please register on our website:
