Description

The invention and perpetuation of myths that have arisen about the “Jewish body”: its beauty or ugliness, cleanliness or filth, health or illness, and handling in life and death. Eleven essays discuss various aspects of this mythology, and the Jewish rites related to it (birth, circumcision, marriage, the ritual purification of women, Sabbath, kashrut, and rites surrounding illness and death). No itemized listing.
