Urim Publications, founded in 1997 by Tzvi Mauer and Moshe Heller, is an independent publishing house based in Jerusalem and New York.
Forging new paths in producing significant works of wide Jewish interest, Urim Publications is dedicated to publishing and distributing classical and contemporary works of the highest caliber.
Our main areas of interest include: Jewish Thought, Spiritual or Meditative Works, Women and Judaism, Jewish Law and Modernity, Bible Commentary, Israel Studies, Modern Biographies, and Children's Illustrated Books.
The children's division of Urim Publications aims to produce beautifully written and illustrated picture books that children will want to read again and again. We hope these books will impart messages worth sharing. Our focus is on original, compelling stories which explore the touching or humorous moments of family relationships and social situations. Stories can be in English or in Hebrew, should target children ages 4-8, and should be approximately 1000 words. If your story meets these criteria and seems to be a good fit for our list, please send a query email to Children@UrimPublications.com. describing your story. Children's Book Editor Shari Greenspan will let you know by email whether we are interested in seeing the full manuscript.
Illustrators may send an email to Children@UrimPublications.com including links to websites where their work is highlighted.
