Israeli film Academy Award nominee, Footnote (He’arat Shulayim), which is currently being screened throughout the US, shows the “footnote” of the title, where, prominently visible, is a reference to the Hebrew Union College Annual. Since 1924, the Hebrew Union College Annual has published scholarship in the areas of Jewish and Cognate Studies, Ancient and Modern: Bible, Rabbinics, Language and Literature, History, Philosophy, and Religion, providing a scholarly forum of the highest quality. Each article is anonymously peer-reviewed by two readers, and is selected on the basis of its making a new and significant contribution to the discipline in which it is being submitted. We congratulate HUCA and its status in the Israeli academic world, acknowledged in the world of Israeli artistic and popular culture.
