The Journal of Jewish Education from 1929 to 2007, totaling more than 2200 articles, is now fully searchable and available online at Stanford’s Berman Jewish Policy Archive (www.BJPA.org).
Dr. Helena Miller, the Journal’s senior editor commented, “The Journal is delighted to be able to make its decades of volumes fully accessible through the BJPA. This development significantly advances the way Jewish education professors and students throughout the world will be able to teach and learn. We are excited that the premier international Journal of Jewish Education will now reach the widest audience possible thanks to the vision and work of the BJPA.”
Prof. Ari Y. Kelman of Stanford, co-director of BJPA remarked, “The BJPA is especially appreciative of the efforts of the Journal’s longtime publisher, Taylor & Francis, for giving permission to make its contents available.” Each year another volume year (four issues) of the Journal will be released. Articles published in the last ten years will continue to be available to members of the NRJE (Network for Research in Jewish Education) as well as individual and institutional subscribers.
Prof. Steven M. Cohen of HUC-JIR, BJPA co-director added, “The BJPA is also grateful to the Lippman-Kanfer Institute for Living Torah for supporting the effort, and to the efforts of Jon Woocher (z”l) who enabled the digitization and acquisition of the Journal. Jon was a lifelong scholar, champion, and engine of Jewish education and he would be pleased to see that the contents of the Journal are now available to all who wish to use them to further the efforts of Jewish education in North America and around the world.”
