Space and Place in American Judaism

Rachel L. Greenblatt


Examines the experience of Jews in the United States through the prism of the spaces and places in which American Jews have lived, worked, and spent their leisure hours, including synagogue, home, neighborhood, stage & screen, and more. Readings will range from primary documents relating to Jewish life and thought in the United States to theoretical pieces on the nature of "place." Attention will be paid as well to continuity and change over time and to Jewish uses of place and space in the American context as compared to older Jewish models.
