Ethno-Religious vs. Religious Ritual: A Look at a Learning Ritual That Brings Together American and Israeli Orthodox and Non-Orthodox Jews

By Ezra Kopelowitz

Brill Books, 2003

The author examines a learning program bringing together secular and religious American and Israeli Jews to study Jewish texts. The author places this program in the framework of an ethno-religious ritual rather than a religious ritual, because the ritual does not contain elements intended to draw stark lines between insiders to the activity (i.e. religious Jews) and outsiders (i.e. secular Jews).
