about a new journal, Israel Numismatic Research.

Numismatic Society will automatically receive a copy each year.

[The following text is from the journal's web page. -Editor]

"The first numismatic journal published in Israel was sponsored
by the Israel Medals and Coins Society, which published a Bulletin
in Hebrew in February-March 1962. The editor was the energetic Leo
Kadman, then president of the Israel Numismatic Society. Kadman
produced four fascicles of the Bulletin. Upon Kadmanís untimely
death on December 27, 1963, the Bulletin faltered, and its last
fascicle was published in November 1964.

"The Israel Numismatic Society (founded 1945) first published its
Israel Numismatic Journal as a quarterly, in April 1963. Its first
editorial board was headed by Michael Avi-Yonah. This Journal appeared
for three years. After a hiatus of fifteen years, the Israel Numismatic
Journal reappeared, in 1980, ostensibly as an annual. All edited by
Prof. Dan Barag, this and nine subsequent volumes of the INJ have
appeared since then.

"During the hiatus, the Israel Numismatic Society published an
internal quarterly in Hebrew, entitled Alon (????) and edited by
Arie Kindler, which produced five numbers, between 1966 and 1974.

"Research of the ancient, medieval and modern coinage of this region
has become increasingly relevant to multi-disciplinary studies in
fields such as archaeology, history and iconography. In inaugurating
Israel Numismatic Research the INS national board wishes to stress
the importance of having a high level numismatic journal which
appears regularly, at the end of each calendar year. The ability
to publish a true annual reflects the advances in the field of
numismatics in Israel over the past decade. The title of the journal
signals the Societyís wish to encourage comprehensive and innovative
research in the field.

"The focus of Israel Numismatic Research will be on coinages circulating
in the southern Levant, from antiquity through to the modern era.
Articles on medals, tokens, metrology, sealings and minor arts related
to numismatics will also be considered for inclusion, as will book
reviews."
