About the Jewish Political Studies Review

The Jewish Political Studies Review is the first and only journal dedicated to the study of Jewish political institutions and behavior, Jewish political thought, and Jewish public affairs.

Published by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, the JPSR appears twice a year in the form of two double issues, either of a general nature or thematic, with contributors including outstanding scholars from the United States, Israel, and abroad.

During the past forty years, the Jewish community has become much more conscious of its political dimension, with political concerns now among the foremost mobilizers of Jews. In response, Jewish political studies has emerged as an acknowledged academic discipline, one with important implications for the Jewish people, Israel, and the diaspora Jewish communities. Courses in Jewish political studies are now offered at some 25 universities around the world, and the field has become part and parcel of the teaching of a new generation of Jewish communal professionals.
