"Whether you are a scholar in search of the past, a journalist in need of facts in the present, or a young Jewish girl looking for role models for dreams of the future, Moshe Shalvi's CD encyclopedia is a treasure-trove of articles and references. User-friendly and thoughtfully compiled, this source is as much a joy for the casual browser as for those who come with a purpose."
- Gloria Steinem

"I'm a "Jewish Women" addict; can't get enough of this brilliantly-conceived, meticulously organized, exceedingly user-friendly, CD encyclopedia ... Moshe Shalvi has produced a monumental work, a lasting tribute to the well-known and the unsung, those whose accomplishments and passions might otherwise have been lost to history; a feast for the present generation, and a generous gift to posterity. All in all, a triumph."
- Letty Cottin Pogrebin


"...the universality of scope in this production is unique among sources of information on Jewish women. Highly Recommended."
- Choice


"An exciting development in this burgeoning field [the study of Jewish women's lives]... the scope of this project is massive."
- Jewish Women


"The reader consulting Jewish Women: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia should be prepared to spend more time than expected perusing this user-friendly compendium (sponsored by the Jewish Women's Archive) because one click leads to another.... This reference work can be used as a jumping-off point for the serious academic scholar, yet its accessible language and easy referencing make it appealing as well to students and lay readers."
- Hadassah
