Jewish Wikipedia wish list


On Wikipedia is going dark for 24 hours on Wednesday, Jan. 18. If you need reliable info on modern Jewish experience, you may have to rely on us for a bit.

Are you a Wikipedia editor with an interest in Jewish history? Do you want to be one? E-mail us. We’d like to hear from you.
