  • Messianism, Secrecy, and Mysticism: A New Interpretation of Early American
           Jewish Life by Laura Arnold Leibman
    • Abstract: <p>By Shari Rabin</p> Laura Leibman’s book is a welcome account of the understudied colonial period in American Jewish history. Utilizing the tools of material cultural studies, Leibman argues that kabbalah and post-Sabbatean messianic anticipation were central to the embodied religious lives and cultural productions of Jews in what she terms the “Jewish Atlantic World” (5) of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This “world” was a product of the transatlantic trade that sent Jews to port cities like Amsterdam, Newport, Curacao, and Paramaribo. It was populated largely by conversos, who had converted to Catholicism under the Inquisition but returned to Judaism upon leaving the Iberian Peninsula. Examining the spaces, bodies, and ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Jewish Origins of Cultural Pluralism: The Menorah Association and
           American Diversity by Daniel Greene
    • Abstract: <p>By David Weinfeld</p> In the fall of 1906, a group of Jewish students at Harvard formed a club. Known as the Harvard Menorah Society (HMS), this group was not religious in nature, nor was it political. It was not a Zionist organization, though most of its members were proud Zionists. It was not socialist, though that was the ideology of many Jewish intellectuals of the time. It was not Yiddishist, though that was the language of so many of its members’ co-religionists, if not the members themselves. Instead, the Harvard Menorah Society represented the latest, most sophisticated attempt for educated Jews in the United States to be simultaneously Jewish and American. In his excellent book, The Jewish Origins of Cultural ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Superman is Jewish?: How Comic Book Superheroes Came to Serve Truth,
           Justice, and the Jewish-American Way by Harry Brod
    • Abstract: <p>By Samantha Baskind</p> As a lover of comics, I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging book, which chronicles the remarkable history of Jews in the comics industry. Within, Brod offers some suggestions about why this might be so, along with insights on comics ranging from Superman to Mad magazine to graphic novels such as Joe Kubert’s Yossel, Will Eisner’s A Contract with God, and Art Spiegelman’s Maus. Superman is Jewish? is not a scholarly book written in academic prose, nor did Brod intend it to be. Rather, published by a commercial press, ten short, sometimes-conversational chapters are written in an accessible style without a plethora of footnotes, and certainly not any expository ones. I did regret the absence of an index and more notes ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Collect and Record! Jewish Holocaust Documentation in Early Postwar Europe
           by Laura Jockusch
    • Abstract: <p>By Joanne Weiner Rudof</p> In this meticulously researched monograph, Laura Jockusch provides a much-needed reminder that efforts to document the Holocaust, including “history from below” initiated by Jews, began during the war itself and has consistently occurred since. Jockusch notes that discussions dealing with historiography were occurring simultaneously as well. Ghetto chronicles, diaries, letters, and documents, foremost among them the Ringleblum archives of the Warsaw ghetto, are the most obvious. Before the war was fully over, in liberated territories, Jewish lawyers, doctors, academics, including some professional historians, and others, were forming historical commissions to document the events they had just experienced. Jockusch ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • In History’s Grip: Philip Roth’s Newark Trilogy by Michael
    • Abstract: <p>By Aimee Pozorski</p> “For literary criticism to have any kind of political application today, literature must first have cultural currency,” Michael Kimmage argues in his review of Adam Kirsch’s 2011 book, Why Trilling Matters. Kimmage goes on to say that, “The critic lives the drama, creating heroic readers in the process, and it is these readers who unite author, text and audience in a prospering literary culture.” Kimmage, the author of a previous book on Trilling, The Conservative Turn: Lionel Trilling, Whittaker Chambers, and the Lessons of Anti-Communism, unwittingly seems also to describe himself. In his most recent book, In History’s Grip: Philip Roth’s Newark Trilogy (an excellent new addition to Stanford Studies in Jewish ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Jews and Words by Amos Oz, Fania Oz-Salzberger
    • Abstract: <p>By Mark Shechner</p> A Jewish book is inevitably an argument, or at least one side of an argument. From the Torah to this most recent fulmination by Amos Oz and his daughter, Fania Oz-Salzberger, argument has been the Jewish way of making sense of the world: responding to questions with questions, to propositions with counter-propositions, to error with reason, and to reason with counter-reason. “Jewish literature, from scripture to stand-up,” write the authors of Jews and Words, “displays a recurring love of the counter-proposition, the answer-back, the chutzpah.” (41) That is why the Talmud looks the way it does, with Gemara nested within commentaries, which are still further nested in commentaries. To penetrate these nests of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Tarnishing Tinseltown: Hollywood’s Responses to Nazi Germany
    • Abstract: <p>By Lawrence Baron</p> Not since the publication of Daniel Goldhagen’s Hitler’s Willing Executioners has a scholarly monograph generated so much controversy within and outside of academia as Ben Urwand’s The Collaboration. He indignantly indicts Hollywood for colluding with Nazi Germany’s censorship demands to purge Jewish characters and anti-Nazi themes from American movies during the 1930s. Urwand’s sweeping condemnation of Hollywood’s complicity contrasts sharply with Thomas Doherty’s more balanced assessment of how the American film industry responded to Hitler’s incremental escalation of anti-Semitic, expansionist, and repressive policies before the outbreak of World War II. The initial trigger for the debate over the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Hebraizing the Arab-Israeli: Language and Identity in Ayman
           Sikseck’s To Jaffa and Sayed Kashua’s Second Person Singular
    • Abstract: <p>By Rachel S. Harris</p> Hebrew unified Jews from disparate countries and ethnic backgrounds as part of Israel’s nation-building process; consequently, linguistic mastery of the Jewish language served as the sine qua non of social mobility. Arab citizens living within the new state were caught in this wide net; knowing Hebrew and becoming familiar with secular Jewish Israeli culture was a precondition for advancement and integration.1 In time, Arab writers, such as Emile Habiby, would write in Hebrew, which like Jewish writers in Israel who continued to write in their mother-tongue Arabic, confronts what Lital Levy has described as the conventional binaries of Israel: “Hebrew Arabic, Arab and Jew.” By disrupting these traditional ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Cabaret Identity: How Best to Play a Jew or Pass as a Gentile in Wartime
    • Abstract: <p>By Beth Holmgren</p> In the late 1980s, Stefania Grodzieńska (1914–2010), a Polish Jewish cabaret artist and satirical writer, composed her first work of nonfiction on a wave of fury. Titled Urodził go Niebieski Ptak (The Bluebird Brought Him), her book began as a biography of the great Warsaw cabaret director Fryderyk Járosy, and evolved into a personal recollection of the Holocaust and World War II, when she and her husband, songwriter Jerzy Jurandot, became close friends with him. Grodzieńska explained that she felt compelled to write “the truth” about Járosy after she had seen an inaccurate portrayal of him in the film Miłość Ci Wszystko Wybaczy (Love Forgives Everything; 1981): “I was furious. My rage exploded when [the film ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Shimon Adaf and the Peripheral Novel
    • Abstract: <p>By Adia Mendelson-Maoz</p> In the 1950s, the vast waves of emigration of Jews from Arabic-speaking countries to Israel created a need to house all the newcomers and impelled the new state to confront problems of infrastructure. Initially, the newcomers were housed in mahanot olim (immigrant camps) and later in ma’abarot (transit camps.) Early on, permanent housing was offered to immigrants in Arab neighborhoods and towns that had been vacated after the 1948 war, and later, development towns were constructed to house them. The population dispersal policy aimed to build a series of development towns in peripheral areas in Israel that had been sparsely occupied by Jews; towns such as Be-er Sheva and Ashkelon were classified as ... <a href="">Read More</a>
