The Journal of Jewish Languages is preparing a special issue to commemorate the fiftieth yortsayt* of Uriel Weinreich (1926-1967), a pioneering scholar in the fields of language contact, variation and dialectology, formal semantics, and Yiddish studies. One of Weinreich's last papers, published in 1968 and co-authored with his doctoral students William Labov and Marvin I. Herzog, laid the groundwork for the empirical study of linguistic variation. In addition to his seminal works in linguistics, including the widely-cited volume Languages in Contact (1953), Weinreich was also a prolific scholar who did much to enable and promote the academic study of Yiddish in the United States.

This special issue of the JJL will feature original research articles on Jewish languages that draw upon the theories and methodologies of the fields most influenced by Uriel Weinreich's work, including but not limited to:

- Language variation and change,
- Language contact and multilingualism,
- And Yiddish studies (especially dialectology, standardization, and pedagogy).
