ISL Dictionary

The ISL dictionary is a dictionary for Israeli Sign Language. It was produced by The Institute for the Advancement of Deaf Persons in Israel (IADPI) in a collaborative effort by deaf Israeli signers, led by Sara Lanesman, Irit Meir, and Yael Kakon.

The original dictionary website is not working anymore; information about the dictionary is still retrivable. The dictionary is currently hosted by Ma’agale Shema. Signs are searchable by keywords in Hebrew and English.

Data from the ISL dictionary was used to create the ISL-LEX database.
