Abstract:

"Forging Modern Jewish Identities illuminates facets of modern Jewish Identity through engagement with diverse historical moments, political and social currents, and literature as an aspect of popular culture. Its introduction places the volume within the burgeoning genre of anthologies that constitute a significant - but little noticed - development in Jewish and ethnic-national historiography. Cutting across disciplinary and national boundaries, the articles highlight Jewry's encounter with modernity from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. While acknowledging the power of acculturation, each of the contributions details how Jews transformed themselves, individually and communally, while reshaping notions of Jewish community and what it means to be a Jew in the modern world."--Jacket.
