American Jewish Year Book

The American Jewish Year Book 2016 (vol. 116) is now available from Springer and the ASSJ is pleased to be able to offer a discount to anyone who participates in a bulk purchase we are organizing. Currently edited by ASSJ members Arnold Dashefsky and Ira Sheskin, the Year Book has been published annually since 1899. It is a significant resource for academics, communal leaders, media, and laypeople.

The 2016 volume includes essays by nine scholars about the Pew Research Center's 2013 landmark study of the American Jewish community, as well as Pew's response; essays on the Jewish family (by former ASSJ President Harriet Hartman) and American Jews in the international arena (by Mitchell Bard); and updates on the Jewish populations of the United States, Canada, and the world.
