Jonathan Boyarin

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • The author is one of the most important and innovative voices in Jewish Studies today. In this book, he returns to his first discipline, anthropology (his Ph.D. is from the New School), to present a "native ethnography" of the New York congregation in which he has studied and worshipped for a quarter century.
  • The book provides an introduction to Orthodox Jewish practice, and has been carefully prepared to be intelligible to non-Jews.
  • It is written in an appealing, personal voice, which the author and his agent (the former owner/manger of Cody's Books in Berkeley) have worked to make accessible to a general audience and to students.
