Completion of the editorial board of the new Standard Jewish Encyclopedia, which is to appear next year, was announced yesterday by Rabbi Isaac Landman, editor-in-chief. The undertaking has already been two years in preparation and has enlisted the cooperation of 630 scholars here and abroad.
Originally planned as a concise work in five volumes, Dr. Landman announced yesterday that the work has been expanded into ten volumes, principally due to the mass of material that has been brought to light in the field of American Jewish history and the decision to include biographies of important living Jews the world over. Volume one is scheduled to appear October, 1931, and the other volumes at two month intervals thereafter.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
