In co-operation with Marginalia Review of Books and Simon Rabinovitch, HUC Press and University of Pittsburgh Press are proud to announce that we will be publishing a new volume entitled Defining Israel: Sources and Reflections on the Jewish Nation-State Law. From the Marginalia post describing the project:
Between December 2014 and October 2015 Marginalia ran the “Defining Israel” forum featuring documents and essays on Israel’s parliamentary struggle over the question of whether or not to pass a law defining Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people. In addition to English translations of all versions of the nation-state bill submitted to Israel’s Knesset, Marginalia also published the report issued by Professor Ruth Gavison to the then Minister of Justice, Tzipi Livni, and commentary by a dozen scholars and politicians. The complete forum with new contributions will be published by Hebrew Union College/University of Pittsburgh Press.
