Under the guidance of co-editors Eugene M. Avrutin and Ranen Omer-Sherman and a prestigious international editorial board of multidisciplinary scholars, Shofar enlivens the field of Jewish Studies through rigorously researched and vetted exciting new research, offering an attractive venue for scholars to disseminate their work in an influential and widely cited journal.
