  • To The Readers
  • Michael Feldberg, Director of Research

With this issue of American Jewish History, we recognize the service of the two dedicated editors who have shepherded the journal over the last five years and who are now completing their terms.

As editor since 2002, Eli Faber, Professor of History at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, The City University of New York, has carried on the distinguished legacy of his predecessors. Meticulous in his work on manuscripts, he saw countless submissions through the many stages of the publication process. Typical of his high standards was the landmark issue he produced commemorating the 350th anniversary of Jewish settlement in America. Under his leadership, the journal developed new features, such as the "In Search of. . ." series and the publishing of original source documents that otherwise would have remained unavailable to scholars and teachers.

As Associate Editor, Rafael Medoff, Director of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, assisted Prof. Faber in recruiting talented contributors to the journal. He also oversaw the rigorous review process through which incoming articles are vetted by leading scholars in the field.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the Academic Council and the staff of the American Jewish Historical Society, we wish to thank Eli Faber and Rafael Medoff for their significant contributions to the journal and to the field of American Jewish history. We are pleased that they will continue to share their wisdom and experience as members of the journal's Advisory Editorial Board.

As we acknowledge the contributions of the outgoing editors, we also welcome aboard the new editor, Eric L. Goldstein, Associate Professor of History and Jewish Studies at Emory University, and wish him much success in the years ahead.
