The Jewish ValuesFinder is an online digital guide, devoted exclusively to Jewish books for children and teens. The purpose of the Valuesfinder is to identify the Jewish values found in books written for Jewish kids in English or in translation. The Jewish values expressed or implied in books of Jewish content for children and teens are identified in a database of individual book titles. Subject headings are also given for each title as well as descriptive and bibliographic information. The list of Jewish values was developed by the editor, drawing on numerous sources, both printed and those gained from the experience and advice of colleagues. There are currently about 1500 titles in the ValuesFinder database, with new ones being added constantly.
