Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Jewish Studies is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal published by Purdue University's Jewish Studies Program. It is the official journal of the Midwest and Western Jewish Studies Associations.


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]
