Founded in 1945,
Jewish Bookland
is a most significant publica­
tion of the Council. Published seven times a year as the cultural
supplement to the
JWB Circle,
it has a circulation of over 15,000,
reaching librarians, book dealers, publishers, authors, researchers,
Jewish educators, rabbis and Jewish communal leaders, both
lay and professional. It is the only periodical which reviews all
English books of Jewish interest published in this country, as
well as selected Hebrew and Yiddish books. A panel of over one
hundred volunteer reviewers, among them many of America’s
leading Jewish scholars and literary personalities, write for the
periodical in their specialized areas of competence. Dr. A. Alan
Steinbach has been serving as editor since 1962. The other mem­
bers of the Editorial Board are: Philip Goodman, associate
editor, Madelaine Berg, managing editor, Dr. Eugene B. Borowitz,
Dr. Jacob Kabakoff and Dr. Sol Liptzin.
