Beit Mikra was founded by Ben Zion Luria as the Hebrew-language publication of the Israel Society for Biblical Research, which later became the Israeli branch of the World Jewish Bible Society.[1] (The Jewish Bible Quarterly was later established as the World Jewish Bible Society's English-language journal.) After a reorganization in 1989, the Israel Society for Biblical Research was reduced to publishing Beit Mikra "on a miserly (and often delayed) grant from the Ministry of Education."[2]
