The JPS Textbook Series

Projected Publication: 2016-2026

The JPS Textbook Series is an ambitious twenty-volume, decade-long project to fill a critical need in the teaching of Judaic studies in universities and synagogues across North America and the English speaking world.

The JPS Anthologies of Jewish Thought, a ten-volume series encompassing comprehensive works on the denominations of modern Judaism and other important schools of thought, will feature the presentation of key primary sources with commentary.

The JPS Series in Jewish History, a ten-volume collection of innovative works, is intended to address the general sweep of Jewish history in novel ways, and to provide highly readable surveys of specific eras in the Jewish saga.

These anthologies and histories will serve academics in the undergraduate university setting as well as rabbis and teachers in adult education and advanced high school classes. At the same time, they are expected to appeal to the interested lay readers who have always appreciated JPS reference works. The prospective authors of these volumes (contracts pending for all named volumes) represent a mix of established professors, rising new scholars, and gifted rabbis that represent the spectrum of the Jewish world's finest writers and teachers.
