Ktav Et is an open access journal funded by means of in-kind donations. The journal is an outcome of the intensive work of a group of committed and devoted people from all over the world.


The publication of Ktav Et would not be possible without help from our accomplished aiders. Thus, here is a place for the word of gratitude.


First of all, I would like to thank Paideia – The European Institute for Jewish Studies in Sweden for organizing a wonderful and truly professional workshop for young Jewish activists (Paideia Project-Incubator) in which the authors of Ktav Et had the honour to participate. The support and invaluable feedback we received there have immeasurably helped us to crystallize our idea of an international academic journal, as well as to define our mission, vision and goals.


In order to guarantee high professional standards of Ktav Et, the editorial board including academics and scholars representing different areas of Jewish Studies was the sine qua non. Therefore I would like to express my gratitude for their support, precious advice and generous help in proofreading and reviewing articles. I would like to offer my special thanks to: Prof. Shoshana Ronen (University of Warsaw, Poland), Dr Marek Baraniak (University of Warsaw, Poland), Prof. Maciej Tomal (Jagiellonian University, Poland), Dr Marta Marzańska-Mishani (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom) and Dror Mishani (Tel Aviv University, Israel).


Ktav Et would not have come out without the excellent work of graphic designers and computer scientists. I thank  Michał Ługowski, a superb  web designer, for creating the website. I am especially grateful to Dr Marek Baraniak, who was always willing to help and ready to advise on technical issues. At last but not least, I am delighted to say thank you to my brother, and a brilliant webmaster – Artur Szwabowicz for his unfailing support, eagerness to work and readiness to help.



Thank you all for participating in Ktav Et project and making it possible!
