Welcome to the Medieval Anglo-Jewish Women (MAJW) site. MAJW is a project in development. It compiles information about the hundreds of Jewish women who lived, worked, and raised families in medieval England. In the Alpha version of this site, 18 women are FEATURED, a designation that means images, biographies, and further reading suggestions are included in their profiles. 18 is a significant number in Judaism, the numerical equivalent of the Hebrew word chai (life).
Records of 781 others are also available. Visit the About page for more information on the project.
