Ben Yehuda Press publishes books of interest for the American Jewish community. Despite the upsurge of many segments of the Jewish publishing market in recent years -- including specialized Jewish presses and academic presses -- there are still worthy texts, representing underpublished, important subject areas, that should be made available in print.
Ben Yehuda Press aims to build a backlist whose steady sales in the years ahead will provide increasing revenues for its publishing project. In evaluating books, therefore, we are more interested in a work's long-term value in the years ahead than the prospect for immediate sales.
Our list will focus on the following topics:
- Jewish studies
- Jewish education
- Jewish reportage
- Contemporary Israeli music
Ben Yehuda Press launched in the Fall of 2005 with a distinctive line of books.
