Of Moses and Marx: Folk Ideology and Folk History in the Jewish Labor Movement

Synopsis

Participants in the Jewish Labor Movement in the United States constructed a "folk ideology"--a unique synthesis of radical politics and symbols borrowed from Jewish tradition--and crafted a "folk history" of its origins and practices. This is the only study to offer an in-depth description of radical celebrations of Passover. The book also presents, in its appendices, complete texts of three radical haggadahs.
