HBI Series on Jewish Women

The HBI Series on Jewish Women publishes a wide range of books about Jewish women and gender issues in diverse contexts. By offering fresh perspectives on Jewish women’s history, lives and experiences worldwide, the series aims to close a major gap in Jewish learning.

Books in the HBI Series on Jewish Women are appropriate for course adoption in Jewish studies, women’s studies, gender studies, history, religion and many other fields of study.

Authors may submit proposals to Series Editor Lisa Fishbayn Joffe, SJD.
