Haredi masculinities between the Yeshiva, the army, work and politics : the sage, the warrior and the entrepreneur
Hakak, Yohai, author
Leiden ; Brill, 
1. Masculinity, youth, and the haredi minority in Israel -- 2. From the army of God to the Israeli armed forces -- 3. Between the holy and the practical: young haredi men acquire a profession -- 4. Journey into the meanders of Israeli politics: haredi men in the Likud Party -- 5. Filmed on a weekday -- 6. From the world of Torah to the heart of Israeli society: concluding discussion.
"In Haredi Masculinities between the Yeshiva, the Army, Work and Politics: The Sage, the Warrior and the Entrepreneur, Hakak takes us on a fascinating journey into the world of young Haredi men who dare to leave Jewish Haredi religious seminaries (Yeshivas and Kollels) and explore new territories. Through extensive participant observations in a Haredi army basic training course, an occupational training program in Hi-Tech professions and the Haredi Headquarter of the Likud Party, Hakak explores the interactions between young Haredi men and the cultural and masculine models they meet in these new sites. Hakak's observations expose the varying ways in which Haredi masculinities are being re-shaped through such interactions, and how this is impacting the Haredi minority and Israeli society more broadly"--

Tapper, Aaron J. Hahn, author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, 
Narratives -- Sinais -- Zions -- Messiahs -- Laws -- Mysticisms -- Cultures -- Movements -- Genocides -- Powers -- Borders -- Futures.
"An introductory textbook that examines how Jews are a culture, ethnicity, nation, nationality, race, and religion. With each chapter revolving around a single theme--Narratives, Sinais, Zions, Messiahs, Laws, Mysticisms, Cultures, Movements, Genocides, Powers, Borders, and Futures--this introductory textbook interrogates readers' understanding of the Jewish community. Written for a new mode of teaching--one that recognizes the core role that identity formation plays in our lives--this book weaves together alternative, marginalized voices to illustrate how Jews have always been in the process of reshaping their customs, practices, and beliefs. Judaisms is the first book to assess and summarize Jewish history from the time of the Hebrew Bible through today using multiple perspectives"--Provided by publisher.

Modern Orthodox Judaism : a documentary history
Eleff, Zev, author
Lincoln : University of Nebraska Press, 
First history of the Modern Orthodox movement 'Modern Orthodox Judaism' offers an extensive selection of primary texts documenting the Orthodox encounter with American Judaism that led to the emergence of the Modern Orthodox movement. Many texts in this volume are drawn from episodes of conflict that helped form 'Modern Orthodox Judaism'. These include the traditionalists' response to the early expressions of Reform Judaism, as well as incidents that helped define the widening differences between Orthodox and Conservative Judaism in the early twentieth century. Other texts explore the internal struggles to maintain order and balance once Orthodox Judaism had separated itself from other religious movements. Zev Eleff combines published documents with seldom-seen archival sources in tracing Modern Orthodoxy as it developed into a structured movement, established its own institutions, and encountered critical events and issues-some that helped shape the movement and others that caused tension within it. A general introduction explains the rise of the movement and puts the texts in historical context. Brief introductions to each section guide readers through the documents of this new, dynamic Jewish expression.
