In January 2023, I became the Director of The Jewish Publication Society (JPS). Since 1888, JPS has been the preeminent not-for-profit publisher of books at the heart of Jewish life in the English-speaking world. Our unique niche is “accessible scholarship,” presenting the best of Jewish scholarship in an intellectually rigorous yet accessible and engaging way to a broad public. Our publications include The JPS TANAKH, esteemed Bible commentaries, landmark projects such as the classic Jewish Catalogs and the first Jewish gender-sensitive translation of the Hebrew Bible (forthcoming), and hundreds of works of history, philosophy, and literature. Our authors include both established and emerging voices, and—along with our readers, supporters, and partner organizations—represent the full spectrum of the Jewish community.

If you have an idea for an original book, translation, and other project in any area, from the Bible and the ancient world to modern Jewish life and thought, please reach out to me at You can learn more about our publications, partnerships, and other initiatives at our website.
