CATALOGUES

The main catalogue

The main catalogue contains records for books and journals/magazines in the museum's library holdings. At present, it has records for all the books that were included in the library after 1965. An ongoing retrospective cataloguing project for the entire holdings is currently underway.

Documents are catalogued in Roman characters. Books written in Hebrew letters are also listed by title, author and publication information in the Hebrew alphabet. Older books can also be viewed in the scanned card catalogues.

The Gazette of the Jewish Religious Community in Prague / Roš Chodeš

The original title of this periodical is the Gazette of the Jewish Religious Community in Prague. In 1953 it became the Gazette of the Jewish Religious Communities in Czechoslovakia and in 1991 it was renamed Roš Chodeš. The catalogue contains records of articles from issues of the gazette dating from 1934-2000 (articles from 2001 onwards are in the electronic catalogue).

The catalogue contains about 6,000 records. The cards are arranged alphabetically by author surnames or – in for anonymous works – by the first word of the title. Cards with subject headings are also included if the article deals with a prominent person or a topic that is known under an established term (e.g., Kumrán – scrolls).

Name catalogue of part of the Terezín Collection

This catalogue lists part of the collection of books that were amassed in the Terezín ghetto during the Second World War and were given a call-number starting with the letters 'Jc'. These Hebraica books were sorted by the Talmudkommando, a group of experts whose task was to create a representative collection of Hebraica (books written in Hebrew). After the war, part of this collection was transferred to the Jewish Museum in Prague, where some of the books were incorporated into the ordinary holdings and others were kept separately.

The cards are transcribed from Hebrew into Roman characters and arranged alphabetically.
