What is "Jewish" about art? Could we understand ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary plastic arts without their Jewish dimensions? Does Jewish art have to include religious elements? Is "Israeli" art also Jewish? Join our fascinating journey into both art history and Jewish studies.

Ars Judaica: The Bar-Ilan Journal of Jewish Art is an annual peer-reviewed publication of the Department of Jewish Art at Bar-Ilan University and Liverpool University Press.

Ars Judaica publishes scholarly research concerning Jewish visual culture through the ages from a variety of perspectives including history, iconography, semiotics, psychology, sociology, phenomenology, and folklore. We also publish research regarding Jewish contribution to other visual traditions and promote the studies of Jewish art in its interaction with surrounding cultures.

The journal operates a double-blind system of peer review. Manuscripts may be returned to authors for revisions. A digital file of the edited version will be returned to authors for proofreading, clarification, and approval prior to typesetting.
