Sample text

All told, this brisk intra-faith competition testifies to a spiritual revival in Israel and beyond. The heightening presence of ultra-Orthodox factors in mainstream society has placed the spot light on interactions between Haredis and their fellow Israelis. Additionally, since the 1980s, internal Haredi matters have been covered by the mainstream press, and ultra-Orthodox themes and lifestyles have been portrayed on television, in the cinema, and theaters with greater frequency than before. At the same time, some Haredi or exHaredi writers, like Dov Elboim, the late Israel Segal, Naomi Ragen, and Chana Bat Shahar, have become very popular in Israel, despite or by virtue of their unique ultra-Orthodox style (Caplan and Stadler, forthcoming).

Born in prewar Krakow, Shnirer was a pioneer of Orthodox education for girls. In 1917, she established Bais Yaakov (the house of Jacob), an innovative network of all-girls schools that merited the approval of Poland’s leading rabbis. In her historical study, Michal Shaul (forthcoming) explains how the community in Israel has incorporated Shnirer’s dual religious-secular curriculum into the presentday Bais Yaakov system. While this approach was once frowned upon by Israeli ultra-Orthodox leaders, today Shnirer’s ideas dovetail neatly with the changes that the community is undergoing and its aspirations for women.

Lehmann and Siebzehner argue that, in contrast to the fundamentalist streams in Israeli Judaism, Shas does not object to Jewish diversity. For example, in his halachic rulings, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef—the movement’s 31 32 Chapter 1 founder and spiritual leader—explicitly recommends that people follow their own traditions in matters such as women’s dress, liturgical ceremony, and the starting time of prayers. Shas has yet to decide, and probably has not even discussed, whether the party’s long-range goal is to transform the State of Israel into a halachic theocracy.
