Abstract

In Haredi Masculinities between the Yeshiva, the Army, Work and Politics: The Sage, the Warrior and the Entrepreneur, Yohai Hakak offers an ethnographic study of Haredi men and how their interactions and encounters outside of their community are reshaping their experiences and understandings of Haredi masculinity. While he would have welcomed more extensive exploration of some of the more fascinating aspects of the book – including Hakak’s own reflections on ethnographic practice – Younes Saramifar finds this a valuable and insightful addition to contemporary studies of Jewish identities.
