It became one of the most important journals in modern Jewish historiography. Thanks to this journal, the study of East European Jewish history became a collective enterprise and vastly expanded its scope. Such heretofore neglected topics as Jewish folklore, Yiddish, popular reactions to persecution and oppression, and the history of Jewish autonomy were addressed. Contributors also included promising Jewish historians in Habsburg Galicia, such as Majer Balaban (1877–1942) , Ignacy Schiper (1884–1943) , and Mojzesz Schorr (1874–1941) ” (YIVO, 2012) .
