Friedberg Genizah Project

The Friedberg Genizah Project (FGP) is a database containing 739,868 digital images of geniza fragments from sixty libraries. Developed by the late Yaacov Choueka (1936–2020), a computational linguist and emeritus professor of computer science at Bar Ilan University, FGP has been revolutionizing the study of the Cairo Geniza since it was launched in 2007. The site includes catalogue entries, bibliographic records, crowd-sourced identifications and transcriptions. It also includes computed data about the images and an automated joins-suggestions function that proposes matches for fragmentary pages. The site is available for anyone to use, but requires registration.
