The EAJS Digital Forum offers each year a series of online meetings for all interested in Jewish Studies and the Digital Humanities. The Jour fixe is dedicated to the presentation of a tool or method and the discussion of its wider implications and purposes for projects in Jewish Studies.

27 May: Oleksii Chebotarov (University of St. Gallen), “Jews on the Move: Digital Mapping Approaches to the History of Jewish Migration”.
25 March: Thomas Kollatz (Akademie der Wissenschaften, Mainz), “A (Very) Short Introduction to Digital Editing with Text Encoding Initiative”.

28 January: Avi Shmidman (Bar Ilan University / Dicta, Israel), “Digital Humanities Tools for Jewish Studies Research: The Dicta Website”.
The Jour fixe continues in 2023. Topics and dates will be announced in the EAJS Newsflash.
