From the Back Cover:

The goal of the "Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World" is to cover an area of Jewish history, religion, and culture which until now has lacked its own cohesive/discrete reference work. The Encyclopedia aims to fill the gap in academic reference literature on the Jews of Muslim lands particularly in the late medieval, early modern and modern periods. The Encyclopedia is planned as a four-volume bound edition containing approximately 2,250 entries and 1.5 million words with an additional index volume. Entries will be organized alphabetically by lemma title (headword) for general ease of access and cross-referenced where appropriate. Additionally the "Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World" will contain a special edition of the Index Islamicus with a sole focus on the Jews of Muslim lands. An online edition will follow after the publication of the print edition. If you require further information, please send an e-mail to ejiw@brill.nl.

Review:

"If Jews in Muslim-majority countries have shrunk to a miniscule 50,000 souls, nearly all of them in Morocco, Turkey, and Iran, things were once different. Indeed, until the seventeenth century Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews outnumbered the Jews of Europe. More than that, as Stillman writes in his introduction, it was in the medieval Muslim world that "many aspects of Judaism as a religious civilization were formulated, codified, and disseminated, and this includes the domains of liturgy, law, and theology." But if the Mizrahi/Sephardi population has great importance for Judaism and for the Middle East, scholars have slighted it. The 1.5 million-word Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World came into existence in part to rectify this weakness, in part to make a wealth of obscure knowledge available. It succeeds with great distinction... Congratulations to the publisher, Brill, for organizing this remarkable reference work. Congratulations to Stillman and his team for excellent work."

Daniel Pipes, Middle East Quarterly, Winter 2017
