Feldberg, Michael, American Jewish History


In 1982, two younger scholars succeeded Henry Feingold as the new editors of American Jewish History. Marc Lee Raphael, now the Nathan and Sophia Gumenick Professor of Judaic Studies and the chair of the Department of Religion at the College of William and Mary, and Jeffrey Gurock, the Libby Klaperman Professor of Jewish History at Yeshiva University, became the journal's editor and associate editor, respectively. For twenty years, they steadfastly recruited scholarly articles, edited and refined them, and saw them into print. They inherited a tradition of first-rate editing established by Isidore Meyer and carried forward by Nathan Kaganoff, Melvin Urofsky, and Henry Feingold. Professors Raphael and Gurock more than upheld that trust.

Loyal editorial board members helped them ratify decisions about which articles would finally be published, but the final choice and the burden of copyediting each essay accepted for publication resided with Marc Raphael.
