Suburbia won't appear like a lot of a spot to pioneer, yet for younger, religiously dedicated Jewish households, it truly is open territory." This sentiment--expressed within the early Nineteen Seventies via an Orthodox Jew in suburban Toronto--captures the essence of the suburban Orthodox Jewish event of the overdue 20th century. even though hardly linked to postwar suburbia, Orthodox Jews in metropolitan components around the usa and Canada have effectively mixed suburban existence and the tradition of consumerism with a robust feel of non secular traditionalism and neighborhood solidarity. via their very life in suburbia, argues Etan Diamond, Orthodox Jewish groups problem dominant assumptions approximately society and non secular tradition within the 20th century.

Using the background of Orthodox Jewish suburbanization in Toronto, Diamond explores the several elements of the North American suburban Orthodox Jewish neighborhood: sacred areas, synagogues, colleges, kosher houses, and social networks. In a bigger experience, although, his e-book tells a narrative of the way traditionalist spiritual groups have thrived within the such a lot secular of environments. In so doing, it pushes our present realizing of towns and suburbs and their spiritual groups in new directions.
