Map Resources

Looking for maps for classroom or research use? Here is a list of sites where you can download useful maps:
  • Perry-CastaƱeda Library Map Collection:
    Here you will find all kinds of maps, e.g., historical, political, sociological, local, international, etc. A very comprehensive website that I highly recommend.

  • Israel's Story in Maps (Contemporary)
    Sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Has an excellent selection of contemporary map resources for Israel.

  • Maps on Judaism (Historical and Contemporary):
    Produced by Routledge for their textbook, Judaism: History, Belief and Practice, this site has every conceivable map for use with the study of historical and contemporary Judaism.
