        Subject: Launch of the website #DHJewish - Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities

Dear colleagues,

We are very happy to announce the launch of the new website #DHJewish - Jewish
Studies and Digital Humanities:<>.

The #DHJewish website offers a single access point to news, events and projects
on the intersection of Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities. It also provides
an online community <> (powered by the open-
source team collaboration tool Zulip) as well as a dedicated Zotero group
library <>. Furthermore, we are
building a directory of people. You can also follow us on Twitter:

#DHJewish was developed and is hosted by the Centre for Contemporary and Digital
History (C²DH) <> at the University of Luxemburg. It is
run by an international editorial board that consists of heritage practitioners
and scholars from various countries and represents several professional
organisations, including the European Association for Jewish Studies, the
network „Jüdische Geschichte digital“ of the German Association of Historians,
the Association for Jewish Studies and Association for Jewish Libraries. The
project was supported by the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe. On this
page<> you will find more information on the genesis
of the project.

#DHJewish is a work in progress as we continue to add projects and other
relevant information. We welcome any feedback and/or suggestions for new projects
to add. If you would like to share any news or event please let us know at
dhjewish [at] <>.  We also encourage you to send us
your details <> to get listed in the people directory.

The #DHJewish website is part of a bigger project that included the
international conference #DHJewish - Jewish Studies in the Digital
Age<>. This
online event brought together more than sixty scholars and heritage
practitioners to discuss how the digital turn affects the field of Jewish
Studies. An edited volume <> 
with selected papers from the conference will appear in the book series Studies in Digital
History and Hermeneutics (De Gruyter Oldenbourg) in September 2022.

Please visit the website at For any questions you can contact us 
at dhjewish [at]

With kind regards,
Gerben Zaagsma
