Sometimes dubbed the "Jewish Dewey" because it makes use of the same numeric notation as the Dewey Decimal Classification yet is fitted to Judaica, this classification guide is very well suited to Jewish-centered collections. It makes use of some the same instructions catalogers who use the DDC already know, e.g. Divide Like. This second edition has been greatly augmented by contributions from two Jewish women, Rachel Glasser and Rita Frischer, who have labored to bring out various aspects of Judaica the original Orthodox father-and-son team omitted, e.g. women's issues; homosexuality, etc.

I catalog in a synagogue library. I would have given the book five stars, yet I find it still lacks some numbers I and others have had to invent on our own in the appropriate spots. The index could be amplified, too. But it's a bargain, if you want to classify a Jewish collection! ( )
