Religion in a Changing World: Comparative Studies in Sociology

By Madeleine Cousineau | Go to book overview

SOME CONCLUSIONS

Both men and women see identity as couched in a need to be a part of a unique historical experience, a tie to a people and a past with a particular culture. Religion plays a lesser part in this understanding of Jewish identity than do culture and history. The Holocaust, while certainly a part of Jewish identity, is best seen as a part of political identities whereby social justice is directed toward others as much as other Jews, if not more so. Gender differences are clearest in the ways in which each sex narrates their understanding of identity and the consequences of "unique" and "different" and the way in which women deal with being female in a society that still maintains stereotypical views of them and in an ethnic religious community that is still prototypically male.


NOTE
1.
The Orthodox comprise approximately 10 to 12 percent of the U.S. Jewish population.
