Jewish Art Journal

The Center's annual, Jewish Art (formerly the Journal of Jewish Art) is the only periodical devoted to the subject, and has been spearheading the ongoing discussion defining Jewish art since its first issue in 1974. Its articles examine the historical connections of Jewish art to Christian and Islamic art, as well as to the local styles and cultures wherever it flourished. Most articles are in English, with a few appearing in other European languages. Each volume also includes a yearly calendar of events and a list of publications concerning Jewish art worldwide.Jewish Art, formerly the Journal of Jewish Art was started in 1974 by Maurice Spertus and Professor Bezalel Narkiss.
