American Jewish Year Book

The American Jewish Year Book 2018 (vol. 118) 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 2018 volume features a forum on "American Jewry in the 21st Century: Grounds for Optimism or Pessimism," including assessments from more than 20 leading scholars. There are also several review articles, along with updates on the Jewish populations of the United States, Canada, and the world.
