Original: $9.99 Add to Cart

Product Description
Israel's Jewish population is remarkably diverse, composed of peoples from more than sixty countries and six continents. Especially prominent in this medley are the Jews from Yemen, who have occupied a special position in the social, economic, religious, and artistic life of the Jewish community for more than a century. This study examines many aspects of the adaptation of the Jews of Yemen to life in Israel. It is based on extensive fieldwork centered on the Yemenite community of a small city but broadened with comparative material from all over the country. The work examines the history of these people as well as their current social, religious, and economic life. In looking at the Yemenites and urban life in Israel, the book sheds valuable light on the controversial topic of ethnic integration in Israel
