The Brandeis Judaic Studies Journal  publishes outstanding scholarship, foregrounding the work of Brandeis students who are engaged in Jewish studies in any discipline. An undergraduate initiative hosted by the Brandeis Library, the BJSJ seeks to stimulate conversations about issues of importance to students, scholars, and general-interest readers.

Call for Submissions


Dear all,


The Brandeis Judaic Studies Journal is soliciting submissions for its fourth edition, to be published at the beginning of the 2023-2024 academic year. The Journal is written and edited by Brandeis undergraduates of all backgrounds and disciplines. Diverse perspectives and experiences are not only tolerated but encouraged and expected. We hope you will join our Journal and write for us! 


We attempted last semester to focus the Journal on the theme of Jews and American institutions of higher education, hoping to mark the 75th anniversary of Brandeis’ founding with scholarship from students. While we hope to return to that topic at another time in the future, we will be shifting our strategy for this year’s Journal. 


We will be accepting articles on any topic until a deadline of March 6, 2023. If you have written or are writing a paper for a NEJS, IMES, or any other class with a Jewish focus and are interested in getting it published, this is a perfect opportunity to do so. We will, of course, also accept new Judaic Studies scholarship on any topic that interests you! You can submit your articles here. Note: you do not need to submit a proposal before submitting your article.


As always, feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members (Doron Polonetsky, Dov Ratner, Stephanie Kallish, and Allan Feldman) with any questions, concerns, or feedback. We would also be happy to help you develop your ideas before the March 6 deadline!


All the best,

Michael Schwartz
