The yearbook aims to fill a gap that has become more and more
conspicuous among the wealth of scholarly periodicals in the field of
Jewish Studies. Whereas existing journals provide space to medium -
and large sized articles, they neglect the small but poignant
contributions, which may be as important as the extended, detailed
study. The yearbook serves as a platform for small but incisive
contributions, and provides them with distinct context. The substance
of these contributions is derived from larger perspectives and though
not always presented in an exhaustive way, will have an impact on
contemporary discussions. The yearbook covers Jewish Culture in its
broadest sense, i.e. encompassing various academic disciplines -
literature, languages and linguistics, philosophy, art, sociology,
politics and history - and reflects binary oppositions such as
religious and secular, high and low, written and oral, male and female
