Featured eBook: Handbook of Jewish Languages


A new Brill handbook edited by Aaron D Rubin and Lily Kahn

This project grew out of a desire to fill two significant gaps in the study of
the rich variety of languages other than Hebrew spoken and written by Jewish
communities throughout history. Firstly, we wanted to provide an accessible
introduction to Jewish languages suitable for a broad audience, and secondly,
we wanted to put together for the first time a study that treats these diverse
linguistic varieties under a single heading. These two complimentary goals
were the impetus for this volume, which contributes to the growing field of
Jewish language research by serving as a single source for the introduction
to these languages and by providing a significant amount of new data and
analysis. — Scope of the Volume (Introduction by editors)
