  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: It is an honor to be the new editor in chief of the Journal of Jewish Identities. I take up this role after having been involved in the journal in many capacities since its launch. I have served as a member of the board, book review editor, and guest editor of a January 2011 special issue on Post-Soviet Russian-Jewish Identity (iss. 44, no 4). While I have published articles, review essays, and book reviews with the journal, it is a new experience to be on the other side of the publishing table. I am grateful for having my own institutional memory, but also that of the journal founder and previous editor in chief Helene Sinnreich, and managing editor Daniel H. Magilow, who have been instrumental in shaping the ... Read More

  • Commemoration and Jewish National Identity: Lviv in the Last Decades of
           the Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: In January 1886, the Jewish world commemorated one hundred years since the death of Moses Mendelssohn (1729–1786). In Dessau, Mendelssohn's birth place, Berlin, New York, and other places, Jews and non-Jews gathered together to honor him.1 Not everyone in the Jewish world at that time believed that Mendelssohn and his legacy deserved commemoration.2 In the Jewish community of Lviv (Lemberg, Lwów), the administrative capital of the province of Galicia, Jews and non-Jews came together to honor Mendelssohn in the local progressive synagogue (temple).3 Those who attended this ceremony listened to a lecture delivered by Rabbi Bernard Levehstien (1821–1889), the temple's preacher, and to the singing of temple's choir. At ... Read More

  • Jewish Identity in an Individual Age: A Theoretical Analysis of
           Interpersonal Religious Connections and Commitments
    • Abstract: "Among its many functions, political theory opens discussion and engagement and forces people to confront their political beliefs and practices."1Over the course of their history, Jews have operated within a variety of political contexts. These experiences have generated a rich body of political thought that tends to focus on wide-scale frameworks such as State, Nation, Peoplehood, etc. In a religious era that is described by many as the "age of the individual," i.e., the age of religious independence, authenticity, and freethinking, it seems reasonable to expand the boundaries of Jewish political thought by looking at the issue of Jewish political contexts from the micro rather than the macro point of view.2 ...

  • Admiration, Discrimination, and Forced Integration: Maimonides's Embrace
           of Converts to Judaism and his Responsum to Obadiah the Convert
    • Abstract: "We have received questions from our master and teacher Obadiah," Maimonides writes, "the wise, knowledgeable and righteous convert. May the Lord reward his deeds, may he have a full recompense from the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings he has sought refuge."1 About Obadiah, the recipient of this uncharacteristically great show of warmth, we know very little. Obadiah was a convert to Judaism. Although Maimonides never specifically says from which religion Obadiah had converted, his refutations of Obadiah's rabbi's contemptuous views of Islam point toward Obadiah's previous life as a Muslim. We never hear Obadiah's own voice but, from Maimonides's paraphrases of his questions, we glean that he was a ... Read More

  • Public Heroes, Secret Jews: Jewish Identity and Comic Books
    • Abstract: "Who was that masked man'" was the common refrain of those who witnessed the Lone Ranger (John Reid) perform some heroic act or feat of derring-do. The Lone Ranger began in 1933 as a radio program, so it was up to the audience to imagine what the man and his mask looked like. By 1938 there was a syndicated comic strip, and in 1948 The Lone Ranger comic book series began its 145-issue run.1 These visual representations created the now iconic look of a man in a simple black domino mask, which was enough of a disguise that no one could recognize the man under the mask. Superman had already established that something as simple as removing or adding a pair of glasses could obscure a hero's identity, so the Lone Ranger's ... Read More

  • Masked Jews: Conversion and Secret Identities in Late Medieval Iberia
    • Abstract: The rabbis of France were troubled, on account of a convert. According to a query they sent to Rabbi Solomon ibn Adret—chief rabbi of Barcelona in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries—there was a convert to Christianity who "was going from place to place, and in one city he tells the non-Jews that he believes in their idol worship, and in another city he enters the House of Israel and says that he is a Jew, and we do not know if he is a Jew or not."1 The problem posed by this particular convert was sufficiently serious that it required these French rabbis to look beyond their own community and to seek an opinion from a well-respected rabbi across the Pyrenees.While most converts sought to maintain ...

  • It's a Roman … it's a Persian … it's Rabbi Meir! Secret Identities and
           the Rabbinic Self in the Babylonian Talmud
    • Abstract: What kinds of leaders were the late antique Babylonian rabbis' What kinds of heroes did they think they were' This paper explores Talmudic narratives about heroic rabbis using insights from modern superhero studies. What does it mean to see the Babylonian rabbis as superheroes' According to Peter Coogan's popular definition, a superhero isA heroic character with a selfless, pro-social mission; with superpowers—extraordinary abilities, advanced technology, or highly developed physical, mental, or mystical skills; who has a superhero identity embodied in a codename and iconic costume, which typically express his1 biography, character, powers or origin (transformation from ordinary person to superhero); and who is ...

  • The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter: Ernestine Rose, International Feminist
           Pioneer by Bonnie S. Anderson (review)
    • Abstract: In her generous biography of Ernestine Rose, Bonnie Anderson refocuses attention on this freethinker and feminist "more famous than either Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony in the mid-nineteenth century." (5) Renowned on both sides of the Atlantic, Rose immigrated to New York City in 1836, after earlier stops in Berlin, Paris, and London, each place one move further away from the life she was born into in Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland as the daughter of a rabbi. Her father granted his only child the opportunity to learn Hebrew, but not to ask questions. This inherent contradiction led young Ernestine to see how her mind—and that of all women—could not "expand under bolts and bars," and how religion dampened ... Read More

  • Yiddish Empire: The Vilna Troupe, Jewish Theater, and the Art of Itineracy
           by Debra Caplan (review)
    • Abstract: In 1922 in Berlin, German-Jewish mathematician Albert Einstein wrote to Dovid Herman, the director of the modernist Yiddish theater company the Vilna Troupe, applauding him for a rendition of Yiddish writer Peretz Hirschbein's The Abandoned Inn: "I feel the urge to thank you for the sublime delights your wonderful performance … gave me." (116) (Note that Einstein barely understood a word of Yiddish.) As Debra Caplan writes in her beautiful book, Yiddish Empire: The Vilna Troupe, Jewish Theater, and the Art of Itineracy, this compliment from a famous German Jew to a rising modernist Yiddish theater director is a sign that the Vilna Troupe had become a European-wide theater able to attract thousands of audience ...

  • The Scholems: A Story of the German-Jewish Bourgeoisie from Emancipation
           to Destruction by Jay Howard Geller (review)
    • Abstract: Studies of German Jewry have become much more sophisticated and subtle in recent decades. Instead of somewhat sterile arguments about whether Jews in German-speaking lands were assimilated or not, scholars are much more likely today to discuss the German-Jewish experience in terms of an integration and acculturation that left German Jews as Germans and Jews, in their own sub-culture, as David Sorkin, following in the path of George Mosse, outlined in his path-breaking book, The Transformation of German Jewry, in 1987. This excellent portrayal of the Scholem family continues this approach, showing just how German, and how Jewish, the members of the family were, despite the ample political spectrum they covered, even ...

  • Our American Israel: The Story of an Entangled Alliance by Amy Kaplan
    • Abstract: Amy Kaplan's book begins by quoting a 2009 speech by Barack Obama, in which he referred to America's "unbreakable bond" with Israel, a bond that Kaplan characterizes as both unique and dangerously under examined. Our American Israel explores this bond that has long defined the relationship between the two nations, and identifies its roots in shared mythology, international threats, political ideology, military power, and righteous purpose. Kaplan focuses on popular perceptions rather than political or military history. She has managed a difficult balancing act in this endeavor, writing a history of this relationship that shows how popular media (films, novels, bestselling nonfiction, and public history) influenced ...

  • The Jews' Indian: Colonialism, Pluralism, and Belonging in America by
           David S. Koffman (review)
    • Abstract: In the 1992 book Storm from Paradise: The Politics of Jewish Memory, Jonathan Boyarin writes that "the relation [between memory and forgetting is not inverse, but] is closer to that of direct proportion: it is only by having an inkling of at least the possible scope of memory that we can sense the 'quantity' of forgetting." In The Jews' Indian: Colonialism, Pluralism, and Belonging in America, David S. Koffman gives a brilliant account of forgetting, both in the field of Jewish studies and among Jews themselves. Koffman describes how "Jews conceived of their own movement from Europe to America … not as yet another displacement in their long history, but as a new beginning." Particularly, Koffman depicts the ways in ... Read More

  • Hebrew Infusion: Language and Community at American Jewish Summer Camps by
           Jonathan B. Krasner, Sarah Bunin Benor, and Sharon Avni (review)
    • Abstract: "First we'll meet in the chadar ochel [cafeteria] for a peulah [activity], and then in the tsrif [bunk] for a little nikayon [clean-up]." This fabricated summer camp announcement might seem strange to those who never attended a "Hebrew-rich" Jewish summer camp in the United States. But in the new book Hebrew Infusion: Language and Community at American Jewish Summer Camps, authors Sarah Bunin Benor, Jonathan Krasner, and Sharon Avni trace the origins of and contemporary engagements with this exact kind of language, demonstrating how "camp staff members incorporate elements of Hebrew into the primarily English-speaking environment." Describing how camps both past and present foster what they term "Hebrew infusion," ... Read More

  • Jewish Veganism and Vegetarianism: Studies and New Directions ed. by Jacob
           Ari Labendz and Shmuly Yanklowitz (review)
    • Abstract: Jewish Veganism and Vegetarianism: Studies and New Directions, edited by Jacob Ari Labendz and Shmuly Yanklowitz, is a collection of essays by scholars and practitioners of Judaism, vegetarianism, and veganism. Contributors draw from a range of fields, including literature, history, religious studies, linguistics, and biomedical engineering. They include scholars, artists, rabbis, Jewish educators, and activists in organizations dedicated to advancing vegan and vegetarian diets. The book is divided into two sections, the first "studies" being broadly speaking descriptive academic work and the second, "new directions," being broadly speaking normative or political work. That said, as the biographies indicate, many ... Read More

  • The Art of the Jewish Family: A History of Women in Early New York in Five
           Objects by Laura Arnold Leibman (review)
    • Abstract: Colonial and Early Republic Jewish life in North America occupies little space on the teaching syllabus; the first two hundred years of Jewish life in the port cities along the Atlantic coast are usually covered within a single class before moving on to decades that boast a significantly increased Jewish presence in what became the United States, and with it, the proliferation of Jewish communal life. In her new book, The Art of the Jewish Family, Laura Arnold Leibman forcibly argues for the consideration of early Jewish communities in fuller detail by centering women and material culture, and inviting scholars, instructors, and lay readers alike to refocus their attention and ask new questions about this ...

  • The Translated Jew: German Jewish Culture Outside the Margins by Leslie
           Morris (review)
    • Abstract: Das Schreiben tut weh. (Writing hurts.)Rose Ausländer's verse captures the temper of much of Jewish culture, which continues to be scarred by the Shoah, migrations, and traumas of the twentieth century. In recent years, literary scholars have risen to the challenge of interpreting, documenting, and disseminating this still growing corpus of literature, film, memoir, and art. They make use of an array of techniques: new media and theoretical frameworks; new archival resources; keen attention to the visual arts; and above all, an embrace of the transnational, multilingual, diasporic character of Jewish society.In this climate, translation—a prominent force in Jewish society going back to ancient times—has become ...

  • Grief: The Biography of a Holocaust Photograph by David Shneer (review)
    • Abstract: On November 16, 1941, the Soviet Red Army abandoned the strategically significant Crimean port city of Kerch, which soon fell to the invading Germans. On November 24, the occupiers demanded that the city's Jewish residents report to the local Gestapo headquarters, which until just days before had been the offices of the Communist Party. But the Jews were not alone. The Germans also arrested Russians, Ukrainians, Tatars, Greeks, Karaites, and Krymchaks. The victims were trucked to nearby Bagerovo and, between December 1 and December 3, Einsatzgruppe D machine-gunned 2,500 Jews and several thousand others into a Soviet anti-tank ditch. When the Red Army temporarily retook Kerch on December 29 the enormous scale of ... Read More
