Mo'ed - Annual for Jewish Studies

The Center for Jewish Culture at Beit Berl College is pleased to announce the publication of Volume 18 (2008) of Mo'ed - Annual for Jewish Studies (New Series 6). This is the sixth volume of Mo'ed, which both continues and replaces our previous annual, Mehqere Hag - A Journal of Jewish Culture.
Mo'ed is a refereed annual devoted to all branches and periods of Jewish Studies, and welcomes original contributions in these fields in both Hebrew and English. Mo'ed publishes English abstracts of all the Hebrew articles, including review essays, and vice versa. These abstracts may be viewed at our website. 'Guidelines for Contributors" appear at the beginning of each volume of Mo'ed. Referees are chosen from among scholars, both Israeli and foreign, specializing in the fields to which the articles pertain.
You are invited to submit/renew your subscription to the new series. A subscription form is available online at:
