Chapters for an edited book on Jewish family life: An international comparative perspective

Each chapter will focus on Jewish family life in a particular country or region of the world. Ideally, each chapter will include some or all of the following kinds of topics, surveying the extant research and/or reporting on new research:

  • a demographic and socio-economic description of Jewish families, including transnationality if appropriate
  • family roles, including division of economic labor
  • marriage formation, cohabitation
  • marital status; divorce and blended families
  • same-sex couples/parents
  • adoption
  • interfaith and interracial families
  • grandparenting patterns
  • families and health issues; special needs children/adults; senior-care
  • family engagement in Jewish life; families and Jewish institutions/organizations/services
  • denominational variation in family life
  • variations within the country/region
  • change over time

It is understood that not every region—and not every contributor– will have all of this information, but most regions/contributors will have at least some of it. Additional topics may be suggested for inclusion.

Abstracts of 250-500 words should be submitted by March 1, 2019. Acceptance will be notified by April 1, 2019.  If accepted, full chapters (approximately 7,000-10,000 words, though this is negotiable) would be submitted by September 1, 2019.

Any proposal will be considered. All inquiries should be addressed to:
