In recent years, Jewish law has gained significant prominence in American legal scholarship, producing a substantial body of literature exploring the Jewish legal system, both on its own terms and in comparative perspective. In particular, the past few decades have seen a marked increase in the number of articles published in American law reviews addressing substantive, procedural, and conceptual aspects of Jewish law, often in the context of broader considerations of important, unsettled, and controversial issues in American legal thought.
In the past, a number of scholars have compiled bibliographies collecting and, at times, briefly annotating, lists of selected works on Jewish law published in American law reviews and other English sources. David Hollander has now taken these efforts several steps further, producing a comprehensive and annotated list of articles related to the Jewish law that have appeared in American law reviews, going back more than a century.
