The Max Schloessinger Memorial Foundation

The Max Schloessinger Memorial Foundation was established in 1972 from the bequest of Prof. Max Schloessinger (1877-1944), Vice-Chancellor of the Hebrew University, and his wife, Dr. Miriam Schaar Schloessinger (1880-1972), to facilitate the publication of Arabic texts as well as studies devoted to Islam, Arabic language and literature, and Middle Eastern history. The Foundation publishes the annual Jerusalem Studies in Arabic and Islam (JSAI) as well as the Max Schloessinger Memorial Series: First editions of classical Arabic Texts; Monographs in Islamic history and civilization; and Collected Studies in Arabic and Islam.
