American Jewish Year Book

The American Jewish Year Book 2017 (vol. 117) is now available for pre-orders 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 planned 2017 volume includes several review articles, including "The Jewish Place in America's Religious Landscape" (Alan Cooperman and Becka A. Alper of the Pew Research Center), "Economics and American Judaism in the 21st Century" (Carmel Chiswick), and "Intermarriage Among American Jews" (Bruce Phillips); standard articles including "American Jews and the Domestic Arena" (Miriam Sanua Dalin) and "American Jews and the International Arena" (Mitchell Bard); and updates on the Jewish populations of the United States, Canada, and the world.
