Survey of American Jewish personal names

by Sarah Bunin Benor and Alicia B. Chandler

Desk Globe


Jewish names around the world and throughout history

This website is a hub of information about Jewish names, culled from academic research. We have started small - with video lectures about surnames and personal names, a report about American Jewish personal names, some curricular materials, and a bibliography. Eventually we plan to add searchable databases.


This website is an initiative of the Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion Jewish Language Project.
