The Jordan Schnitzer Book Awards are the first annual book award program to be offered by the Association for Jewish Studies, made possible by funding from the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation of Portland, Oregon. These awards recognize and promote outstanding scholarship in the field of Jewish Studies and honor scholars whose work embodies the best in the field: rigorous research, theoretical sophistication, innovative methodology, and excellent writing. The awards are structured to recognize all areas of Jewish Studies research, paying tribute to both the breadth and depth of AJS members' scholarship.
Launched in 2008, the AJS awarded two $5,000 Jordan Schnitzer Book Awards on an annual basis. Since 2012, the AJS has recognized books in three subject areas per year, for a total of nine categories over a three-year cycle.
