Early Hebrew Newspapers

The Jewish National and University Library, David and Fela Shapell Family Digitization Project, is pleased to offer access to its Historic Hebrew Newspapers project.
The aim of this site is to provide open access to images of the major titles of the early Hebrew press (19th and early 20th century).
The site itself is entirely in Hebrew.
These newspapers contain a wealth of primary material on Diaspora and Land of Israel history of the period. Access to them has, until now, been limited to a small number of research libraries which held either the crumbling originals or microfilm copies.
