Since 1981, Shofar has been published quarterly by Purdue University Press on behalf of the University's Jewish Studies Program. It is the official journal of the Western and Midwest Jewish Studies Associations. Shofar publishes original, scholarly work and reviews a wide range of recent books in Judaica.


The journal was originally established as a departmental newsletter by Joseph Haberer in 1982. Over time, it developed into a peer-reviewed journal.[1][2] In 1994, Zev Garber became editor-in-chief of Shofar.[3][4]
