  • Introduction
    • Abstract: As Shofar’s new coeditors, we take the helm of an enterprise with a richly varied history. Founded in 1981, Shofar was first established by Joseph Haberer, the longtime director of Purdue University’s Jewish Studies Program, as a departmental newsletter. In time, it became the official journal of the Midwest and Western Jewish Studies Association. The title reflected its overarching mission. For thirty-five years, Shofar published essays—by both established and younger scholars—pertaining to Jews and Judaism covering the entire world, often exceptionally diffuse in its coverage. Today our editorial vision is more tempered, yet still aspirational. Focusing primarily but not exclusively on modern history, literature ... Read More

  • Ḥama venehederet (Hot and Wonderful): Home, Belonging, and the Image of
           the Yored in Israeli Pop Music
    • Abstract: In his iconic song “Yoshev be’san fransisḳo al hamayim” (Heb.: Sitting on the San Francisco Waterfront, 1980) Arik Einstein,1 one of the most self-reflexive representatives of secular Zionism in Israeli culture, describes an archetype of the Israeli yored.2 An earlier song by the Israeli singer Oshik Levi, “Yonatan sa habayta” (Heb.: Yonatan Go Home, 1973), fore-shadows similar themes. Their works are part of Israel’s golden era of music—a folksy, lyrical rock with little roll, or soft-rock in current parlance. In historical and musical contrast a third example draws from the “punky groove and Hassidic elements, Balkan music with cabaret and rock energy” (Akhbar Ha’ir, September 27, 2011) of the indie group ...

  • “Our Temples Are Deserted”: The Jewish Sabbath Observance Movement in
           New York, 1879–1930
    • Abstract: Starting in the second half of the nineteenth century, Orthodox Jewish leaders in the United States voiced serious concern about what they saw as a decline in observance of the Sabbath among America’s Jews. The perception was widespread and reflected the spoken and unspoken fears of many Jewish leaders that they were witnessing a decline in religious faith or religious identity among Jews in the United States. In 1902, the Reform Advocate expressed this basic fear: “There are many Jews who are Jews in name only. … They have lost every particle of Jewish consciousness, that is if they ever possessed it. They care to have little to do with the Jews.”1 The challenge of reviving religious faith or religious identity ... Read More

  • “We Are in the First Temple”: Fact and Affect in American Jews’
           Emergent Genetic Narrative
    • Abstract: “Do you know what’s in your genes' JScreen is coming to campus 4/1 to test your DNA,” announced a sponsored Facebook post, advertising an event at my university’s student union.1 This post appeared in my news-feed, apparently because three of my Facebook friends “liked” JScreen, one of the dozen or so companies in the United States that caters to specific demographic groups for personal genetic testing—in this case, the target demographic was Jews.2 Such a post, or that three people I knew had chosen to receive updates from such a company, might not be surprising, seeing as the American Jewish community is awash in Jewish genetics. For many years the Forward, the most prominent national, left-leaning Jewish ... Read More

  • Medieval Jewish Perspectives on Human Rights
    • Abstract: We Jews have a precious message to give the world, a central part of which is an unalterable commitment to make the world in which we live a better place. We are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves. We are commanded to insure justice, to clothe the naked, to feed the hungry, to liberate the persecuted, and to share our bounty with those [who] have less than we.

  • Revealing Jews: Culture and Visibility in Modern Central Europe
    • Abstract: On a memorable evening in November 1996, the eminent art historian and Viennese émigré Sir Ernst Gombrich (1909–2001) spoke at a gathering hosted by the Austrian Cultural Institute in London. Gombrich, who had left Austria for Britain sixty years earlier, had received dozens of honors for his foundational work in art history, including his pioneering Art and Illusion: A Study in the Psychology of Pictorial Representation, first published in 1960. But that night, Gombrich addressed a question on the minds of many: how did Jews influence the visual arts in fin-de-siècle Vienna' Given his own family’s classification as Jewish by the Nazis, even though his parents converted to Protestantism after they married, Gombrich ...

  • BDS, Credibility, and the Challenge to the Academy
    • Abstract: In January 2017, at its annual conference, the Modern Language Association (MLA) hosted a town hall–style debate on the merits of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and whether to pass a resolution in support of it. With more than 24,000 members, MLA is the largest professional organization of humanities scholars, and, because of its importance, was determined a critical battleground for BDS activists.1 Members not present at the Philadelphia convention could listen to a live podcast of comments made by audience members, who lined up at microphones to express their opinions. A large screen displayed the short, real-time comments of MLA members not in the room. These projected comments exposed many ... Read More

  • Analyzing Jewish Behavior during the Holocaust
    • Abstract: Evgeny Finkel’s Ordinary Jews is an important book for two reasons. First, it offers one of the few sustained efforts to analyze how Jews in different places behaved in response to Nazi rule instead of simply describing how they experienced it. Most Jewish-centered narratives about the Holocaust have been descriptive and evocative in nature: they have concentrated upon “giving voice” to victims’ perceptions, to elucidating their plight, or to tracing the evolution of their behavior. Ordinary Jews does these things, to be sure, but it also notices aggregate patterns of behavior that varied from community to community, and it tries to account for them using methods and insights from the social sciences.Among other ...

  • Toward a General Theory of Action in Total War and Genocide: Evgeny Finkel
           on Choice and Survival during the Holocaust
    • Abstract: Holocaust studies have long been a field of fruitful exchange between historians and social scientists. One of the founders of the field, Raul Hilberg, was a political scientist, trained by Franz Neumann, a legal scholar connected to the Frankfurt School. Their analysis of the complexity of the Nazi system of domination inspired an entire school of historians.1 Hilberg’s insights into the “destruction process” were later formalized by the sociologist Zygmunt Bauman into one of the most widely cited sociological studies in the field.2 Modernity and the Holocaust, in turn, has stimulated historians well beyond Holocaust studies.3The cross-fertilization between history and social science thus went both ways. To cite ... Read More

  • A Tale of Three Ghettos
    • Abstract: Evgeny Finkel’s recently published book, Ordinary Jews: Choice and Survival during the Holocaust, lays out a very ambitious agenda. The Holocaust has been overlooked by social scientists, Finkel believes, and he wants to put that right: “a ‘political science’ of the Holocaust,” he states, “is both feasible and desirable.”1 To further this aim, he uses three specific Jewish ghettos—Kraków, Minsk, and Białystok—to serve as a “controlled comparison” of Jewish behavior.This “controlled comparison,” Finkel argues, suggests a new topology of Jewish options under German occupation. Finkel suggests four basic behavioral templates: compliance/coping, collaboration/cooperation, escape/evasion, and resistance. Having outlined ... Read More

  • Questions of Choice: The Soviet Case and the Absence of Gender Identity in
           Ordinary Jews
    • Abstract: Ordinary Jews is the book that I wish I had had when, as a graduate student, I first read the work of Christopher Browning on the mindset of the perpetrators of the genocide of European Jewry and the choices they made as they actively partook in the murder operations. I recall that as I wrote my paper, I inquired about the choices of the victims, who were clustered together as a voiceless collectivity devoid of agency. Ordinary Jews is the book that I wish I had had when years later, in the city of Grodno, once home to a vibrant and old Jewish community, I met Hirsh Khosid, one of the only survivors of the Grodno ghetto. As I listened to Hirsh recap the events that led to his improbable survival, incredulous, I ... Read More

  • At the Intersection of Political Science and Social History
    • Abstract: In his important book Ordinary Jews: Choice and Survival during the Holocaust, Evgeny Finkel shifts the analytical focus from the behavior of perpetrators to that of their victims. He asks why did “individual Jews choose particular behavioral strategies, and why does the distribution of these strategies vary across localities'”1 Building on existing historiography, Finkel proposes the following revised typology of victim strategies: (a) cooperation and collaboration, (b) coping and compliance, (c) evasion, and (d) resistance. He then uses nearly 500 Holocaust survivor testimonies to test this typology across three ghettos in Minsk, Białystok, and Kraków. He arrives at several important conclusions. He argues that ...

  • In Search of a “Social Science of the Holocaust”
    • Abstract: In 2012, Charles King made a convincing case for the integration of Holocaust studies and the political science of violence to create cross-fertilization between these two burgeoning, but relatively separate, fields of study.1 Evgeny Finkel’s newly published book demonstrates the potentially rich benefits that can come from this integration, making a significant contribution to the “social scientific turn” in Holocaust studies. Methodologically, Finkel chose to focus on “meso-level research” (political science–speak for the space between national-level and individual-level factors), which he identified as one of the least developed types of analysis in studies of mass violence.2 Ordinary Jews traces the choices of ...

  • Survival Strategies during the Holocaust and Why They Matter
    • Abstract: Based on a thorough study of the three ghettos—Minsk, Białystok, and Kraków—Evgeny Finkel paints a highly differentiated, fascinating, and necessarily grim picture of Jewish behavior during the Holocaust. In many ways it is a post-Arendtian picture in that the categories of collaboration, compliance, and resistance are readjusted and reconceptualized to provide a much richer and empirically more grounded account of Jewish behavior in the ghettos. Whether Jews cooperated and collaborated, coped and stayed put, evaded their persecutors through escape, or engaged in organized and violent resistance depended upon the skills they had obtained in the years running up to the Nazi occupation and, crucially, on the broader ...

  • Choice, Politics, and the Anomalies of Survival
    • Abstract: Given the enormity of mass murder perpetrated during the Holocaust, it is of little surprise that historical analysis has focused largely on the actions, motivations, and choices of those who participated directly in the extermination of European Jewry. Studies by Christopher Browning, Daniel Goldhagen, and Saul Fridelander—among many others—have sought to explain the local dynamics and the broad ideological drives that coalesced into an unprecedented systematization of continent-wide annihilationist violence. Far less attention, Evgeny Finkel posits, has been devoted to understanding the experience of victims of “collective violence” and the “different patterns of behavior” and tactics they adopted in the face of ...

  • Choice and Survival Across Approaches and Disciplines
    • Abstract: Ordinary Jews: Choice and Survival during the Holocaust builds upon the insights, theories, and approaches of social sciences, history, and Jewish studies to analyze how Jews chose their survival strategies during the Holocaust. More specifically, the book tries to understand what caused the different patterns of behavior adopted by the Holocaust’s Jewish victims in three important, but understudied communities—Minsk (USSR), Kraków (Poland), and Białystok (Poland 1922–1939, USSR 1939–1941). The book’s main argument is that the survival strategies adopted by the Jews in these three ghettos were shaped by the political regimes under which the Jews lived before the Holocaust. To demonstrate the impact of pre-Holocaust ... Read More
