We are pleased to present the now 20th issue of Medaon – Magazin für jüdisches Leben in Forschung und Bildung which is available under http://www.medaon.de/de/ausgabe/medaon-11-2017-20/. On the occasion of this anniversary, we as editors would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has accompanied and helped us into the eleventh year of the periodical: all those people, who, through external reviews and editing work as well as translations, have contributed to the high quality in content and style of the articles; the people of the technical and graphical support, which guarantees the flawless working of our website and its further development; all the cooperation partners with whom we were able to create outstanding focal topics; all donors who have supported us with small and large sums; and namely Simone Lässig, Monika Richarz and Hermann Simon who have helped us in word and action and through various mediations in the background (and hopefully will continue to help us for a long time); all former members of the editorial office who made all the issues before this one possible; all advisors of the Medaon Lectures; and of course you who have accompanied us as devoted readers, often with acknowledging words, but sometimes with critical comments, too.
Medaon – a term derived from the Hebrew words meda for information, mada for scholarship, dea for view, and iton for newspaper serves as a widely accessible online platform for interdisciplinary perspectives on Jewish life (past and present)
The focus on Jewish life in past and present stands for the presentation of current perspectives on significant aspects of Jewish life in all of its facets and within various social contexts. Our aim is to foster an inclusive approach to research and education, and to ensure the accessibility of our work for members of the general public.
Medaon aims to offer interdisciplinary perspectives on academic and non-academic research in various contexts. All manuscripts are selected carefully and edited thoroughly prior to publication. Peer reviews are undertaken both externally and via the editorial staff for all pieces.
Since 2007, MEDAON has been published semi-annually every spring and autumn. The journal is issued by HATiKVA e.V. (Dresden, http://www.hatikva.de).
