Jewish History is the sole English-language publication devoted exclusively to historical research on the Jews. It also aims to extend the disciplinary boundaries of Jewish historical writing by encouraging scholars of anthropology, art, law, literature, and sociology to share their research when it crosses paths with history. Thanks to the diverse personal backgrounds and professional training of Jewish History’s contributors, the journal is able to publish innovative essays, often within the framework of special issues on subjects of broad interest. Topics of previous issues have included women and inheritance, the Jews of Latin America, Jewish self-imaging, new historical approaches to Hasidism, and the legacy of Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi, to name but a few.

  • Publishes contributions from the field of history as well as the intersection of history with art, literature, sociology, and anthropology
  • Features contributors with diverse personal and professional backgrounds as reflected in the journal’s innovative essays
  • Sole English language publication devoted exclusively to history and the Jews
