Google partnering with Red de Juderías de España, the Network of Jewish neighborhoods, a non-profit association founded in 1995, to bring online the Jewish heritage of 24 Spanish cities, from Avila to Tudela.
The project announced during a ceremony at Madrid's sparkling new Centro Sefarad-Israel, stemming from the inspiration in Segovia, is called "Caminos de Sefarad - Spain's Jewish Streets."
"Red de Juderías has implemented Google Maps technology so that people can explore the main landmarks online. Clicking on a landmark reveals historical information about each site - and enables a 360º view of the different locations, thanks to Googl's Street View technology," Google informs.
By clicking to the group's website, users from all over the world may visit and tour the cities discover Spain's Jewish past. "An intuitive search panel presents Jewish heritage sites by category, type, geographic zone and date. In total, 523 sites, 910 dates, and 1,667 pictures are displayed," google adds.
Also, this week, the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library, an online collection of more than 5,000 scroll fragments, were uploaded in high definition.
