  • Medicalization and the Mainstreaming of Circumcision in
           Mid-twentieth-century America

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: During the 1950s, circumcision rates soared in the United States, affecting Americans far beyond the Jewish community. Physicians performed the procedure in a hospital setting, shortly after a baby boy's birth, for ninety percent of the non-Jewish population by 1959.2 As many scholars have noted, circumcision's appeal among non-Jews has a curious history in both this country and in Great Britain, one that involved the glorification of hygiene and sanitation and the concomitant demonization of the foreskin, as historian Robert Darby aptly put it.3 Touted first as a cure for masturbation and then as a prophylactic measure against it, the procedure gradually became the norm in the United States.4 With the widespread ...

  • Mainstream and Radicalism in American Zionism: The Avukah Affair,
           1934–1945

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The American Zionist student organization Avukah embarked on a profound transformation in the mid-1930s. Avukah, founded in 1925, was the main representative of the Zionist movement on American campuses. In the years that followed, it metamorphosed from being apolitical, in the sense that it did not support or affiliate with any specific Zionist party or ideology, into a radical left movement that viewed the world through the lens of Marxist analysis, while critiquing American capitalism. It also supported a socialist and binational Jewish-Arab state in Palestine. This put the movement into conflict with both the American Zionist establishment and other groups of young Zionists. At the beginning of the 1940s, the ... Read More

  • "In unserem Kreise": Czech-Jewish Activism and Diaspora in the USA,
           1933–1994

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Well over ten thousand Jews from Czechoslovakia immigrated to the United States between 1933 and 1950, first fleeing Nazism, then Stalinism. A minority within this minority, predominantly from Bohemia and Moravia and numbering no more than a few hundred, distinguished themselves by founding and joining a series of Czechoslovak-Jewish organizations. These individuals wrestled with nostalgia until the century's end, fighting to implant and preserve their lost culture in a new American home. They clung to each other, to identities rooted in a shattered world, and to a fading tradition of bourgeois, Jewish, associational life. The following investigation into their activities and motivations (distinct from others in ... Read More

           Historiography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: On November 7, 2018, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered an apology for Canada's 1939 federal government decision to deny entry to the MS St. Louis, a German ocean liner that had carried 937 Jewish refugees. The ship would eventually return to Germany and 227 of its passengers would ultimately be caught in the Nazi death dragnet. The refusal of multiple countries to accept these refugees (Britain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands each accepted asylum seekers) helped solidify the Nazis' confidence that the western world didn't care much for the plight of Jews, already apparent at the Evian Conference a year prior. In Canada, the MS St. Louis became shorthand for the country's abysmal wartime record regarding ... Read More

      Abstract: DNA Test Results Videos23andMe, https://www.youtube.com/user/23andMeThere is a small town in Tennessee where the people think that they are Turkish, or rather that they are a tribe of people, called Melungeons, that is descended from Turkish sailors, who sailed with a Portuguese crew, or perhaps with Francis Drake, in the 1700s, and ended up in coastal Virginia, and from there walked into the woods of the Appalachian ridge, where their descendants live today. In fact, they are sure of it. They look, it is true, unlike many of their neighbors—darker skin, curly hair. For many years, they said they were Portuguese, then settled on Turkish.

  • Jewish Autonomy in a Slave Society: Suriname in the Atlantic World,
           1651–1825 by Aviva Ben-Ur (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Aviva Ben-Ur's brilliant new history of Suriname's Portuguese Jews not only illuminates the colonial formation of a major Atlantic Jewish community but also maps important new methodological and conceptual directions for the nascent field of Caribbean Jewish studies. Within the Jewish Caribbean, the Surinamese community is a particularly rich subject for the historian because of the unique legal status it enjoyed—one that is reflected in its abundant records. While the exceptionality of Surinamese Jewry has long been recognized, Ben-Ur recasts the terms of that uniqueness, pointing not only to the community's territorial and legal autonomy but also its inclusion of Eurafricans. Only in Suriname did Eurafrican Jews ... Read More

  • Painted Pomegranates and Needlepoint Rabbis: How Jews Craft Resilience and

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: People make things—scarves and scrapbooks, decorative objects, ritual items and household implements—for all sorts of reasons: to keep warm, to record the passage of time, to enhance their surroundings, to honor their ancestors, to busy their hands. People also make things to create and sustain a sense of community, as Jodi Eichler-Levine's absorbing account of contemporary American Jewish crafting culture makes clear.Sensitive to the importance of touch as an interpretive category, she trains her considerable ethnographic sights, born of three years of fieldwork, on clusters of contemporary American Jewish women who, acting in concert, actively crochet, embroider, knit, quilt, sew or weave. The Pomegranate Guild ... Read More

           Eleff (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Boundary-policing has become a defining feature of Orthodox Judaism. Social science research reveals the elusiveness yet realness of these boundaries. Historians have largely presented a picture of Orthodoxy in America as a "slide to the right," wherein Orthodox Jews have moved to more stringent religious attitudes over the last century, thus pushing out many of those who might otherwise consider themselves Orthodox. However, amidst a sustained focus on how American Orthodoxy has changed despite an internal narrative of stasis and adherence to a singular tradition, we can now identify more clearly the many ways Orthodoxy has transformed, responded, and divided over the last century.Authentically Orthodox ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Without remembrance of the past there is no present or future. Therefore, scholarship seeks to unpack and scrutinize memory by examining memorialization in its various forms and representations. Scholars have recently paid particular attention to memorial museums and sites of trauma, specifically to the scientific progression of memory studies and their historical development within the national context of Holocaust remembrance and commemoration. While study of individual, collective, and commemorative Holocaust memory remains essential, consideration of how national and cultural artistic forms shape and rely on history and memory, especially in the age of mass tourism and Holocaust education, is overdue.

      Abstract: How do you pay tribute to an eighty-year-old enclave that gave you some of the best memories of your life, yet was a bastion of racism for much of its existence' That is the dilemma faced by Jeffrey S. Gurock in Parkchester: A Bronx Tale of Race and Ethnicity. Written with affection and acuity, the book is a balanced insider's account of the vast and visionary planned community in which he grew up. More broadly, it is a teeming microhistory of the struggle for fair housing in New York City.Opened in 1940 and still home to twenty-five thousand people, Parkchester was the dreamchild of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company president Frederick H. Ecker, who sought a safe, socially beneficial, taxabated investment for ... Read More

  • The Kosher Capones: A History of Chicago's Jewish Gangsters by Joe Kraus
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Toward the end of The Kosher Capones, Joe Kraus admits what may be on the mind of many who first pick up this book—that this book and the idea of a Jewish gangster is a set up for a joke. It aligns with the spate of comedies that portray the Jewish gangster as somehow having taken a wrong turn and ended up running a tough-minded, unforgiving criminal enterprise. As Kraus says, Jewish gangsters are often "more the stuff of comedy than anything to be taken seriously" (159). Not far into the narrative, however, we are led down a path of cold-blooded murders, tough Jews, sluggers, and intimidation. We are given insight into the twentieth-century Jewish organized crime history of Chicago, which though not as robust as ... Read More

  • The Jews of Eighteenth-Century Jamaica: A Testamentary History of a
           Diaspora in Transition by Stanley Mirvis (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The old saying is that you wait for a bus for ages, and then two come along at once. For scholars of Jewish history in the Caribbean, two buses have just arrived, both superb and thought-provoking. In Jewish Autonomy in a Slave Society: Suriname in the Atlantic World, 1651–1925 (2020), Aviva Ben-Ur has written a compelling social and religious history of Jews in colonial Suriname, focusing on the twin themes of autonomy and creolization. Stanley Mirvis's extensively researched analysis of the history of Jamaican Jews in both seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Jamaica (the title, along with being off-puttingly narrow in conception, is misleading in its chronology) examines similar themes for the Jews in Jamaica. ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Against the backdrop of a devastating pandemic—the effects of which have been disproportionately borne by women, especially women of color, and which has inspired an explosion of rent strikes, mutual-aid efforts, mass protests, and civil disobedience—I was happy to hear of a new book exploring one of the most famous uprisings in American Jewish history: the kosher meat boycotts of 1902. Forty years have passed since Paula Hyman published her seminal essay about the episode, during which time scholars have introduced a range of new frameworks for examining women's political participation, and the time seems ripe for reconsideration.Central to Hyman's essay were questions of consciousness: were the women boycotters ...

  • Starstruck in the Promised Land: How the Arts Shaped Passions About Israel
           by Shalom Goldman (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Starstruck in the Promised Land, Shalom Goldman recovers many unheralded figures and events that diffused Zionism into United States consciousness, as seen in Chapter Four, "Advocates for Zion: Sinatra, Steinbeck, Baldwin, and Bellow." The book also aims to recover the ways that US celebrities as different as Whitney Houston, Barbra Streisand, and Madonna have served the State of Israel. Assembling brief reviews of the reception of these personalities allows us to see the role of celebrity, a tactic that Israeli state builders have used to develop strong feelings of love and pride in Palestine/Israel and in the United States. This tactic jettisoned features of the place for emotions and ideas about the place. ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Learning on the Left provides a detailed review of whom Stephen Whitfield admires and whom he does not. The book could use tighter editing. At 480 pages, it periodically wanders off into discussions unrelated to either Brandeis or the left. The author and I do agree on one thing: Brandeis is/was an excellent school and provided opportunities for a wonderful and challenging liberal arts education. I was a student there from 1958 to 1962 and was privileged to have as teachers some of the people mentioned in the book, including Louis Coser, Frank Manuel, Ray Ginger, and Herbert Marcuse. President Abraham Sachar hired them and others with unconventional backgroundsWithout a definition of what he means by "left" or a ... Read More
