Nashim provides an international, interdisciplinary, and scholarly forum in Jewish women's and gender studies, and is the only one of its kind. It creates communication channels within the Jewish women's and gender studies community and brings forth that community's work to a wider audience. Each thematic issue is produced in consultation with a distinguished feminist scholar, and includes articles on literature, text studies, anthropology, archeology, theology, contemporary thought, sociology, the arts, and more. Nashim is a joint publication of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University, the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, and Indiana University Press.
