Jews in Israel: Effects of Categorization Practice on Research Findings and Research Frameworks

Jews in Israel: Effects of Categorization Practice on Research Findings and Research Frameworks

(p.290) The God of History

This chapter examines the influence of categorization practice on the study of Jews in Israel. It describes the shift from old frameworks of modernization in favor of the pan-ethnic and Orientalist frameworks for research dealing with the 1950s immigrants. It suggests the shift away from the binary classification of “Mizrahi” Jews (originating in Muslim countries) and “Ashkenazi” Jews from Christian countries toward a split approach based on countries of origin.

Keywords:   Jews, Israel, categorization practice, Mizrahi Jews, Ashkenazi Jews, Jewish studies
