Three Jewish Journeys Through an Anthropologist's Lens free pdf This book presents a list of chapters that introduce a life-long career of ethnographic works carried out by a leading Israeli anthropologist. It presents Moshe Shokeid's explorations, discoveries, and feelings about the vicissitudes of social life which he closely observed in three major arenas of contemporary Jewish life: Moroccan Jews who immigrated from Atlas Mountains to become farmers in the semi-arid Negev fields- Israeli-born citizens, who left their homes to start a new life in America- and, finally, American gay Jews who chose to preserve their cultural heritage and maintain spiritual synagogue life as part of the mosaic of New York Jews. The panorama of Shokeid's ethnographic journeys ends with a few chapters that display his methods of research and his personal experiences as participant observer among his fellow Jews in their unique path to promote their social and spiritual aspirations.
