(p.1) Introduction Materialisms
Jewish Materialism

Eliyahu Stern

Yale University Press

It provides an overview of modern Jewish history in relation to the question of Jews’ and Judaism’s relationship to materialism. It explores the way in which Russian Jews in the late nineteenth century mobilized an imagined concept of land, labor, and body for various national and religious projects. Abstract conceptions of God, dogma, or ritual were not the primary elements that connected modern Jews to one another. Instead, it was a new conception of the physical world.

Keywords:   Materialism, economics, Jewish history, modern Jewish historiography, Bundism, Zionism, Secularization
