Article
In October 2018, Lucy Aharish, a Muslim Israeli-Arab journalist, and Tzachi Halevy, a Jewish Israeli actor, were married. In Israel, mixed-marriage, especially between a Jewish-Israeli man and a Muslim-Arab-Israeli woman, is perceived to threaten the social order. This celebrities’ mixed marriage triggered a heated public debate focusing on “assimi...

The history of the gender order in the kibbutz is similar to that of other communes, secular or religious, in the modern era. The gender order has always been unequal, for there has never been a re-definition of equal parenthood, nor a structuring of the apparatus of production as a function of an egalitarian definition of manhood, womanhood, and p...

This paper brings together two rich bodies of knowledge that have barely intersected in research: parental involvement in the school and processes of pedagogical change. Until now, parental involvement has been studied in many contexts, but references to parental involvement in a school’s pedagogy are rare. Management of pedagogical change has also...

This volume focuses on today's kibbutz and the metamorphosis which it has undergone. Starting with theoretical considerations and clari cations, it discusses the far-reaching changes recently experienced by this setting.

Fogiel Bijaoui Sylvie and Sharabi Rachel This book presents the historical development of gender borders in the kibbutz and the moshav – two democratic, socialist-inspired forms of settlement that grew out of the Jewish national movement in Palestine. Presenting multifaceted voices of women, it points to central mechanisms that (re-)produce gender...

In this paper I analyze this dual picture of an impressive march toward gender equality paradoxically embedded in a virulently patriarchal power structure, that is, in a structure that (re)produces men’s dominance over women. To this end I adopt the CEDAW’s approach, which defines gender equality as men’s and women’s equal access to, and equal oppo...

In this article, I analyze how the mainstream media in Israel, increasingly shaped by social media, constructs a story about a mixed marriage between an Israeli woman, who was raised as Jewish and had converted to Islam, and a Israeli Muslim-Arab man. Referring to 57 items published mainly in August 2014 (during the Third Gaza War), a "human rights...

Despite the individualization of the family institution in Israel as in other post-industrial societies, institutionalized religious mechanisms provide additional guidelines and severely restrict individual autonomy in order to produce normative families in terms of marriage, divorce, and children’s status. As argued above, for all the ethno-religi...

Family individualization occurs, if at all, at a different pace and to a different extent in various societies and in various parts of society. Its impact has led to new scholarship in the social and caring professions, for which the concept of family is central in both professional education and practice. It is assumed that attitudes toward changi...

Article

Despite the ever-growing number of families that are mixed across national, cultural, racial, and religious boundaries worldwide, it appears that most of the existing research and theorizing on mixedness relates to Western countries, with a special emphasis on English-speaking, North American, and British contexts, where most of the research is car...

This study questions the “clash of civilizations” thesis. Referring to the cosmopolitanization process as defined by Beck and Sznaider (2010), I analyze the cosmopolitanization of feminism, that is, the gradual recognition of “the others’ others”, the women, through the evolution of their political rights—the right to elect and be elected—at a glob...
Chapter
Although Israel, as a postindustrial society, is undergoing a process of individualization, familism clearly remains a marker of that society. That is so mainly because the personal status of all inhabitants –Jews, Arabs, and “others” –is governed by religious institutions. This situation seems to be desired by the majority, which, given the Jewish...

Despite the extensive literature about the "GreatAliyah," the return migration from the formerSoviet Union (F.S.U.) to Israel, only a few studieshave dealt with the babushka (grandmother)-acentral icon of Soviet culture-and her dynamic(re)configuration in the Israeli context. Thispaper analyzes the reshaping of thebabushka-as a gendered, dynamic, a...

In 2010, the Knesset passed the Spousal Covenant Act, which enables Israelis 'lacking religious affiliation' to marry and divorce in Israel. Using the 'twin tolerations' theory, I present the process and the actors involved in the legislation, pointing out that in Israel the twin tolerations are reflected in the so-called status quo. On the basis o...

In post-industrial societies, the individualization of the family process, which puts the individual at the center of the family, is changing this institution beyond recognition. As part of this evolution, individuals and their human rights, together with their obligations and responsibilities, become the basis for the family institution and for it...

This article traces the footsteps of women born in Palestine - most of them Sephardic - who became directors of Alliance schools between the end of the 19th century and 1939. Wanting to escape the conditions of their lives and open themselves up to modernity, it was to the Alliance that they turned, the Alliance for which a certain kind of women's...

The panel discussion held at the Schechter Institute on "The Experiences of Israel's Women Soldiers over the Generations" presents perspectives on military service by women who have served in Israel's defense forces (including the pre-state Palmach) in various periods and frameworks. For the purpose of analysis, I would like to invoke two opposing...

The first kibbutz, founded in 1910 as a modern Jewish egalitarian community, strove to fulfill democratic and egalitarian principles. Though gender equality was never fully implemented in the kibbutzim, from the 1920s on it nevertheless became a central principle of this classless society—largely as a result of kibbutz women's collective action.
