Announcing new titles in the Jewish Culture and Contexts series

covers of books in the series with a banner across them titled "Jewish Culture and Contexts"

The Jewish Culture and Contexts series is published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in association with the Katz Center. The series is co-edited by Steven Weitzman, Francesca Trivellato (Institute for Advanced Study), Shaul Magid (Dartmouth College), and Beth Berkowitz (Barnard College), and its goal is to deepen understanding of Jewish culture within the specific historical and geographic contexts in which it has developed. Broadly interdisciplinary, this series features monographs in all areas of Judaic studies.

This past year, there were many notable monographs published in hardcover and ebook format as part of Jewish Culture and Contexts. The Katz Center is proud to celebrate the following authors on their recent publications:
