scholarship herald a new moment in the study of Jewish writing.
Hebrew Literature in the Post-Imperial Age: The

By David Aberbach, Dept.
of Jewish Studies, McGill University

North American Jewish Studies
By Deborah Dash Moore,

levels of frustration for close to two decades as Jewish studies has grown
and flourished in the United States. My frustration stems from the pace and
direction of that growth, specifically the almost total lack of opportunities
despite strong student interest to teach the history of Jews in the U.S. (or what we provincially call American
Jewish history, resolutely ignoring both Canada
and the rest of the Americas).
