Medaon

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-worlds (past and present)

Focus on Jewish life-worlds – this approach 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.
