Shibboleth is Yale’s only undergraduate journal dedicated to specifically Jewish content. Shibboleth hopes to enrich the Jewish conversation at Yale and in the world, and to amplify the voices of emerging Jewish scholars. We are a forum for debate in the spirit of Hillel and Shammai and an intellectual community.
We accept a variety of pieces, including essays in the realm of Jewish thought, culture, identity, and history; creative writing and personal reflections relating to Jewish content and themes; and translations of Jewish texts. Whether it’s an assignment for class, original content, or just the seed of an essay that you’d like to develop further, consider sending it our way.
