Hodess, Jacob


HODESS, JACOB (1885–1961), Zionist journalist. Born in Vanuta, Lithuania, Hodess moved to London at the age of 13. He started on his journalistic career at a young age, writing in Hebrew, Yiddish, and English. From 1911 to 1939 he was a member of the editorial staff of the Jewish Chronicle and also edited various periodicals in English and Yiddish, the most important of which was the Zionist weekly New Judaea, which he edited from 1924 to 1949. He settled in Israel in 1949 and became editor of the English-language quarterly Zion. He was also a contributor to the general British press and was the author of a booklet on Perez *Smolenskin (Eng., 1925). Hodess wrote a study on the Anglo-Jewish press (in yivo-Bleter, vol. 43, 1966), which also contains reminiscences of his own work in the field.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
