Books Info:

A Well-Worn Tallis for a New Ceremony free pdf A Well-Worn Tallis for a New Ceremony: Trends in Israeli Haredi Culture is a study of contemporary ultra-Orthodox religiosity in Israel. This book analyses the on-going reconstruction of Haredi culture in Israel, a process which has been spurred on by the challenges of modernity, the worldwide resurgence of religion, and the strong sway of Israeliness. Despite its founders' and the present leadership's long-standing efforts to establish and buttress an community enclave, various modern trends and state institutions, such as secularisation, consumerism, feminism, and the military, are having a profound impact on the yeshiva world. In other words, modernity is making inroads into the Jewish state's Haredi 'ghetto' and transforming many aspects of everyday life. Over the course of her extended research on this community, Stadler has discerned changes in several key areas: religious life- the family structure- and the community's interface with government authorities and the rest of the populace. Her book sheds light on all these developments.
