Conservative Judaism

Vol. 61 (2008-2009) - vol. 66, no. 1 (2014)

Conservative Judaism, sponsored by the Rabbinical Assembly and the Jewish Theological Seminary, publishes articles which express a serious, critical inquiry of Jewish texts and traditions, legacy, and law; further the quest for a Conservative Jewish theology and ideology; and explore today's changing Jewish community. Its perspective is worldwide and transcends denominational boundaries.

Submission Guidelines

MANUSCRIPTS should be submitted via email as Microsoft Word files and sent to the Chairman of the Editorial Board: cj@rabbinicalassembly.org. Please include contact information and a cover note in the body of the email. Footnotes should be placed at the end of the article and should appear in the standard academic style: Transliteration guidelines:

1. Retain final –h for words ending in hei.
2. Use an h with an underdot for ḥet. In MS Word, indicate an h-underdot with the [[.]] siglum.
3. Use hyphens between prefixes and words that follow, except when the vowel of the prefix is a sh'va: ha-aretz, mi-kol, b'mitzvotav, l'vanekha, u-vanav.
4. Dagesh ḥazak is indicated with a doubled consonant, except that –sh- and -tz- are never doubled. No doubled consonants after a hyphen (e.g., mi-kol, not mi-kkol).
5. Use raised dots to break up vowel clusters. In MS Word, indicate the raised dot with the <.> siglum.
6. Sh'va na is indicated by apostrophe. When shva is followed by alef or ayin, retain e to aid legibility: me'or instead of m'or and se'udah instead of s'udaḥ
7. No capitalization in transliterated Hebrew other than for divine names.
8. ḥet=ḥ
Khaf=kh
Kaf and kof=k
Fei=f
Tzadi=tz
9. Medial alef and ayin are not marked, other than by a raised dot when the syllable that follows begins with a vowel.
10. Use ei for tzeirei and just e for segol. Exceptions for words already in common usage in English: seder rather than seider, yisra<.>el rather than yisra<.>eil. No distinction between kamatz and pataḥ.
