Can studying an artist’s migration enable the reconfiguration of art history in a new and “global” mode? Michail Grobman’s odyssey in search of a contemporary idiom of Jewish art led him to cross the borders of political blocs and to observe, absorb, and confront different patterns of modernism in his work. His provocative art, his rich archives and collections, his essays and personal diaries all reveal this complexity and open up a new perspective on post-World War II twentieth-century modernism – and on the interconnected functioning of its local models.
A Textual Reconstruction of Chapters 1–7
The first half of the book of Daniel contains world-famous stories like the Writing on the Wall. These stories have mostly been transmitted in Aramaic, not Hebrew, as has the influential apocalypse of Daniel 7. This Aramaic corpus shows clear signs of multiple authorship. Which different textual layers can we tease apart, and what do they tell us about the changing function of the Danielic material during the Second Temple Period? This monograph compares the Masoretic Text of Daniel to ancient manuscripts and translations preserving textual variants. By highlighting tensions in the reconstructed archetype underlying all these texts, it then probes the tales’ prehistory even further, showing how Daniel underwent many transformations to yield the book we know today.

Maimonides Review of Philosophy and Religion is an annual collection of double-blind peer-reviewed articles, which seeks to provide a broad international arena for an intellectual exchange of ideas between the disciplines of philosophy, theology, religion, cultural history, and literature and to showcase their multifarious junctures within the framework of Jewish studies.
Studies in Musar aims at strengthening the study of Jewish devotional literature and spiritual guidance (musar) in the field of Jewish studies. Covering all geographical areas and languages, the series focuses on the great diversity and versatility of musar from the Middle Ages to contemporary times and its place in philosophical, rabbinic, kabbalistic, Sabbatean, Hasidic, Lithuanian, and New Age thought. The Series particularly promotes comparative research that reads musar in the context of Christian and Islamic spirituality, as well as interdisciplinary approaches that adopt innovative methodologies from the anthropology of religion, gender and feminist studies, the history of emotions, the history of the Hebrew book, linguistics, literary criticism, and ritual studies.

Studies in Musar is a double-blind peer-reviewed subseries of Studies in Jewish History and Culture. Monographs, collected volumes, as well as editions and translations of high scholarly standard are welcome.

Ancient, Medieval and Modern
The Annual of Rabbinic Judaism, Ancient, Medieval, and Modern, the first and only journal to focus upon Rabbinic Judaism in particular, will publish principal articles, essays on method and criticism, systematic debates (Auseindersetzungen), occasional notes, long book reviews, reviews of issues of scholarly journals, assessments of textbooks and instructional materials, and other media of academic discourse, scholarly and educational alike.
The Annual fills the gap in the study of Judaism, the religion, which is left by the prevailing division of Rabbinic Judaism among the standard historical periods (ancient, medieval, modern) that in fact do not apply; and by the common treatment of the Judaism in bits and pieces (philosophy, mysticism, law homiletics, institutional history, for example). Scholarship presently obscures the fundamental unity and continuity of Rabbinic Judaism from beginning to the present. No journal in "Jewish studies" focuses upon the study of religion, let alone upon the single most important Judaism of all time. That is why this new journal is required.
