Description

The religious-Zionist community in Israel developed as an attempt to combine Jewish Law commitment with the values of modernity, two networks of meaning coexisting in tension and not easily reconciled. This book develops a new paradigm for reading religious cultures through a description and analysis of the sexuality discourse as it emerges in the virtual exchange in the Religious-Zionist writings. This is a new endeavor in the study of religious-Zionism or of modern Orthodoxy, centering on the body as the realm of confrontation and considering aspects such as homosexuality, lesbianism, masturbation, and relationships between the sexes.
