Is That Chuztpah in Your Pocket?: Teaching the New Jewish Culture

By Elliot Ratzman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2006

The author states that new monographs, courses and academic panels on Jewish culture are beginning to bring popular culture into the classroom. No longer is popular culture, or Jewish studies, a curious novelty. Rather, recent works in Jewish culture, such as irreverent Jewish humor, are placing the faded texts of the past in a new, more stimulating frame.
