About the Author

Jonathan Frankel (1935-2008) and Ezra Mendelsohn taught Jewish history for many years at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Together with Peter Y. Medding, a professor of political science at the Hebrew University, they founded the Studies in Contemporary Jewry series. Frankel's works include Prophecy and Politics: Socialism, Nationalism and the Russian Jews, 1862-1917 and The Damascus Affair: "Ritual Murder," Politics and the Jews in 1840. Mendelsohn's most recent book is Painting a People: Maurycy Gottlieb and Jewish Art. The current editors of Studies in Contemporary Jewry are Anat Helman, Eli Lederhendler, and Uzi Rebhun, all of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.


"[Studies in Contemporary Jewry] has quickly established itself as one of the most important yearly publications in the world of Jewish scholarship."--American Jewish Archives "A welcome addition to the literature on contemporary Jewry. The series serves the needs of the intelligent layman as well as the scholar and The Hebrew University's Institute of Contemporary Jewry, which sponsors the project, can be proud of its achievement."--The Jerusalem Post
