9781107003446: Between State and Synagogue: The Secularization of Contemporary Israel (Cambridge Middle East Studies)

A thriving, yet small, liberal component in Israeli society has frequently taken issue with the constraints imposed by religious orthodoxy, largely with limited success. However, Guy Ben-Porat suggests, in recent years, in part because of demographic changes and in part because of the influence of an increasingly consumer-oriented society, dramatic changes have occurred in secularization of significant parts of public and private lives. Even though these fissures often have more to do with lifestyle choices and economics than with political or religious ideology, the demands and choices of a secular public and a burgeoning religious presence in the government are becoming ever more difficult to reconcile. The evidence, which the author has accrued from numerous interviews and a detailed survey, is nowhere more telling than in areas that demand religious sanction such as marriage, burial, the sale of pork, and the operation of businesses on the Sabbath.

Book Description:

Guy Ben-Porat's thoughtful new book explores the evolving tensions between the secularization of Israeli society and the constraints imposed by religious orthodoxy. Even though these fissures often have more to do with lifestyle choices and economics than with political or religious ideology, the demands and choices of a secular public and a burgeoning religious presence in the government are becoming ever more difficult to reconcile. This book makes an important and timely contribution to the study of contemporary Israeli society, as it looks beyond the formal arena of politics to understand the changing role of religion in public life.

About the Author:

Dr Guy Ben-Porat has been with the Department of Public Policy and Administration at Ben-Gurion University since 2001. He is a co-author of Israel Since 1980 (2008) and co-editor of The Contradictions of Israeli Citizenship: Land, Religion and State (2011).
