Abstract

This chapter provides lists with city locations, degrees offered, and websites for over 250 Jewish Studies Programs, about 25 Holocaust and Genocide Studies Programs, about 25 Israel Studies Programs, about 15 Israel Studies Professorships, and about 10 Jewish Social Work Programs. The chapter also includes (1) bibliographic information on about 160 books on North American Jewry; (2) names, descriptions, and websites of more than 40 academic journals in or about North American Jewish communities; (3) more than 160 scholarly articles on the study of North American Jewish communities; (4) names, descriptions, and websites for about 50 websites and organizations for research on North American Jewish communities; (5) names, descriptions, and websites for about 50 major Judaic research and Holocaust research libraries.

The purpose of this chapter is to document the academic and research resources available to scholars and others researching North American Jewish communities.

Each list is carefully updated each year, but the authors appreciate any corrections noted by our readers. We have found that the lists we can find for Jewish institutions on the Internet are far from totally accurate.
