Steven Spielberg donated $500,000 to the National Yiddish Book Center to create a digital Yiddish library. Using the latest technology, the western Massachusetts-based center will reprint works on demand, issue them as CD-ROMs and make them accessible on the Internet. The first volumes of the project are scheduled to be available next year.
