Dear EAJS Members,
During this challenging and uncertain time, we want to reassure members that we remain as committed as always to supporting scholars involved in Jewish Studies both within and outside Europe.
Whilst the measures taken to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are having a profound impact on conferences, workshops, universities, libraries and other academic institutions, and on the lives and work of students, lecturers, researchers and scholars, the EAJS will continue to do everything it can to support the Jewish Studies community.
Membership enquiries, announcement requests and other emails will still be read by the EAJS administration and replied to as quickly as possible. At this time, delays are not expected, though this may change and we ask for your patience if response times are a little longer than usual.
The EAJS website and monthly newsflash will continue to provide a place to announce and find news and information. Updates will be posted about conferences and workshops, whether the information is for events planned for after the crisis has passed, or updates for imminent events that are being cancelled, postponed or organised in a different way. Information will also continue to be posted about scholarships, grants, positions, new books, and other news of relevance to the Jewish Studies community.
We hope you stay well and healthy during the difficult days ahead of us.
With best wishes,
Professor Sarah Pearce (Honorary Secretary of the EAJS)
Dr Simon Mayers (The EAJS Administrator)
