Looking for a good Jewish/Hebrew/Yiddish/Ladino/Aramaic dictionary?
Okay, quick: name all Jewish languages. Well, there's Hebrew. And Yiddish. Oh yes - Ladino. And Aramaic qualifies these last 2,000 years or so, though it wasn't originally a Jewish language. (Rather like English, actually - not a Jewish language, but one that a plurality of Jews in the world today speak.)
And Jews speak other languages as well. (Amharic, anyone?) If you're trying to learn a Jewish language, you need a Jewish dictionary. You've come to the right place. If you're a budding Bible scholar, you need a few different Jewish dictionaries - including lexicons and concordances of Hebrew and Aramaic words in the Jewish Bible. You, too, have come to the right place. If you're a translator of technical material from Hebrew into English, there are dictionaries for you here. If you're looking for a children's dictionary of Hebrew words, with nice pictures, that's here, too. Planning a trip to Israel? How about a Hebrew-English phrase book? Learning Amharic (the language that Jews from Ethiopia speak)? You'll find a dictionary here, along with Ladino dictionaries of several kinds.
Of course, there are other kinds of Jewish dictionaries besides dictionaries of languages. There are historical dictionaries of various periods in Jewish history, including the Holocaust, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and others. How about a dictionary of Jewish proverbs? Or a dictionary of Jewish names? Books of Yiddish phrases that you may hear but don't quite understand? All on this very page.
On our own bookshelf at home, we have the Alcalay Hebrew-English, English-Hebrew dictionary in three volumes, plus a few small paperback editions that we picked up as students but still use in the office today or let the kids use for schoolwork. We bought our Alcalay years ago from a sidewalk vendor in Jerusalem. If that's not convenient for you just now, you can buy it here. It's our personal favorite, with etymologies and plenty of references to usage, both modern and biblical.
Here are Jewish dictionaries of all kinds:
