Jewish Quarterly Review

** Scroll down to find JQR blog posts **

The Jewish Quarterly Review was established by Israel Abrahams and Claude Montefiore in 1889, and migrated from England to Philadelphia in 1910, where its publication resumed under the editorship of Cyrus Adler and Solomon Schechter. It remains the oldest English-language journal in the field of Jewish studies. JQR preserves the attention to textual detail so characteristic of the journal's early years, while encouraging scholarship in a wide range of fields and time periods. In each quarterly issue of JQR, the ancient stands alongside the modern, the historical alongside the literary, the textual alongside the contextual.

Recent issues are available online through Project Muse, and to access 130 years of JQR, you can find our full archive digitized at JSTOR.
