  1. Guillermo,You may wish to look at Encyclopaedia Judaica (available on-line at some libraries if you are a member, like Hebrew College and Spertus). It is very good. Jewish Encyclopedia is available on-line without cost. It’s pretty good, but the on-line version was written a hundred years ago. The good thing about both sources is that they clearly distinguish between biblical, rabbinic and later commentary. It’s good to sort them out carefully.
