Inventing Jewish Ritual

Author: Vanessa L. Ochs
Publisher: Jewish Publication Society
ISBN: 0827608349
Release Date: 2007-06-01
Genre: Social Science

Vanessa Ochs invites her readers to explore how Jewish practice can be more meaningful through renewing, reshaping, and even creating new rituals, such as naming ceremonies for welcoming baby girls, healing services, Miriam’s cup, mitzvah days, egalitarian wedding practices, and commitment ceremonies. We think of rituals—the patterned ways of doing things that have shared and often multiple meanings— as being steeped in tradition and therefore unalterable. But rituals have always been reinvented. When we perform ancient rituals in a particular place and time they are no longer quite the same rituals they once were. Each is a debut, an innovation: this Sabbath meal, this Passover seder, this wedding—firsts in their own unique ways. In the last 30 years there has been a surge of interest in reinventing ritual, in what is called minhag America. Ochs describes the range and diversity of interest in this Jewish American experience and examines how it reflects tradition as it revives Jewish culture and faith. And she shows us how to create our own ritual objects, sacred spaces, ceremonies, and liturgies that can be paths to greater personal connection with history and with holiness: baby-naming ceremonies for girls, divorce rituals, Shabbat practices, homemade haggadahs, ritual baths, healing services. Through these and more, we see that American Judaism is a dynamic cultural process very much open to change and a source of great personal and communal meaning. The ceramic “Tree of Life” spice container that appears on the cover of Inventing Jewish Ritual is by Susan Garson of Garson and Pakele Studios, www.garsonpakele.com

Vor allen N chten

Author: Dara Horn
Publisher: ebook Berlin Verlag
ISBN: 9783827070333
Release Date: 2010-02-01
Genre: Fiction

In Vor allen Nächten erzählt Dara Horn die Geschichte von Jacob Rappaport, jüdischer Einwanderersohn aus den Nordstaaten, der während des amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs zwischen alle Fronten gerät: den Kampf gegen die Sklaverei, ein Mordkomplott gegen Präsident Abraham Lincoln, vier bildhübsche Schwestern aus den Südstaaten, deren Charme er hoffnungslos verfällt. Aus dieser Perspektive ist dieser große Stoff der Weltliteratur noch nie beleuchtet worden - und schon gar nicht mit solchem Witz, mit solcher Farbigkeit und der Souveränität einer Autorin unserer Zeit.
