  • BDD

    The journal BDD is intended for people who love Torah and wisdom, who are open to both the fields of general and Torah education, and are interested in thought and research that sprouts from the meeting between the various disciplines. It acts as a meeting place between the modern world and the fields of Torah and halakhic knowledge, as well as for spreading new ideas in the field and for expanding and deepening the discourse between the various fields of knowledge. The journal is also intended to serve as a window for an educated person who does not have a Torah background, through which he will be able to know and understand in depth the path of the Torah discourse in dealing with the challenges that science and philosophy pose in the modern age.

  • Lyre - Studies in Poetry and Lyric

    Lyre:  Studies in Poetry and Lyric is a peer-reviewed, online and open-access journal in English.  It is published by Bar-Ilan University Press and the Department of Literature of the Jewish People at Bar-Ilan University.  Lyre is unique in its dedication to highlighting the transcultural and translingual dimensions of both the Poetry of Hebrew and Jewish Languages, and the Poetry of Israel.  Furthermore, Lyre is also unique in being comprised of two sections:  one which contains scholarly articles on poetry, as well as essays by poets; and one which contains original poetry.  This combination creates a space for conversation between scholars and poets, which further crosses cultures and languages.  While there are literary journals in which poetry is published, and journals in which scholarly articles on poetry are published—Lyre positions poetry at the center of an innovative approach.  This approach delineates a shared space for scholarship and poetic creativity, focusing on a major genre that spans historical periods, languages and cultures of Jewish and Israeli experiences.
