Shofar, a quarterly, interdisciplinary journal of Jewish studies, is the official journal of the Midwest and Western Jewish Studies Associations. Shofar ranges far and wide thematically in a multi-disciplinary world that spans four thousand years. It publishes scholarly articles, opinion pieces, readers' forums, pedagogical essays, and book reviews. Articles are peer reviewed for scholarly rigor but at the same time are written with a minimum of professional jargon and are accessible to a diverse and general readership.

Frequent special thematic issues are also published under guest editorships. Topics for recent and forthcoming special issues include Jewish feminism, Jewish-Christian dialogue after the Shoah, Judaism and Asian religions, Jewish music, Jewish studies in Latin America, and Jewish studies in Germany.
