Editorial Policy of HaLapid

HaLapid contributors come from all over the world. The editors respect different national writing styles and, where possible, have left each item in the author’s style. We edit for grammar, spelling and typographical error. Many contributions are memoirs or retelling or family stories and legends. They may or may not be historically accurate although they are indeed valid, sacred memories that have been passed along through time. We do not attempt to change individual perceptions as long as they are reported as such, but we do change obvious misstatements or historical error.

We reserve the right to edit material. Opinions expressed are those of the authors and not necessarily of the Society for Crypto-Judaic Studies orHaLapid. Articles from HaLapid may not be reprinted without permission.
