Nordisk judaistik/Scandinavian Jewish Studies aims at promoting Jewish studies in Scandinavia by publishing scholarly articles, surveys, documents and by reviewing recent literature. The contributions are published in Scandinavian languages, English, German or French, with an abstract in
English. The journal is strictly academic and does not pursue any special religious, political or cultural policy.
