Chidushim is a peer-reviewed academic journal (included in the VATAT model) published annually in Hebrew by the Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem.

The journal seeks to promote the discourse on the history of German and German-speaking Jewry. Note that it refers to history in the broad sense, and that articles can deal with various aspects of the historical perspective: culture, philosophy, society, economics, anthropology, sports, and arts. Also welcome are papers on the interaction of Jews from the German-speaking space with both Jews and non-Jews from other places and cultures, in Europe and beyond. Thus, Chidushim seeks to expand the discourse on German Jews to relevant global contexts, and open up the discussion to the transnational perspective as well. Accordingly, the journal serves as a textual home for innovative research discourse.

Senior and younger scholars are invited to send us original articles never before published. In exceptional cases, we will consider publishing articles that had previously appeared in select journal, so long as the manuscript is sent in Hebrew. Papers may not exceed 10,000 words (including footnotes and references). Please enclose an abstract in both Hebrew and English (150-300 words), and make sure the text is written and formatted according to the instructions on the Leo Baeck website.

Please email your paper to Chidushim by August 1, 2023. Papers will be accepted for publication subject to an academic review process.

Chidushim regularly publishes a book review section. Publishing houses, scholars and readers are welcome to send us recently published books on the history of Jews in Germany and the German-speaking space, whether in Hebrew or other languages. Books found suitable, will be reviewed, and the review will be published in the journal.

Moreover, researchers interested in proposing a special issue are welcome to send an abstract (up to 1,000 words), as well as the specific abstracts of the proposed articles. All will be scientifically reviewed.
