The Academic Journal of the Shalom Hartman Institute


Editors: Adam Afterman, Ronit Irshai, Ishay Rosen-Zvi, Claire E. Sufrin. Editorial Manager: David Wietchner

Reshit: Studies in Judaism is the academic journal of the Kogod Research Center for Contemporary Jewish Thought of the Shalom Hartman Institute. This peer reviewed journal aims to provide a forum for academic writing aspiring to be important and meaningful and which either implicitly or explicitly relates to the central values, concerns, and issues of Jewish life. As such, the journal invites articles in which historical and philological analysis serve the underlying aim of the article, and are not the goal itself.  In its academic focus, the journal invites works that integrate innovative methodologies and interdisciplinary knowledge, and which are intellectually broad, and, as such, will be of interest to scholars of diverse disciplines and other intelligent consumers of Jewish thought and culture. 

In light of the above, Reshit: Studies in Judaism stipulates two criteria for accepting submissions: First, the article must meet the highest academic standards. Second, the article must be not only innovative but meaningful. To fulfill these criteria, the author is invited to explain the article’s importance and its significance for how we think about and understand contemporary Jewish life—both in the letter of submission as well as in article’s introduction section.
