Hebron Jews : Memory and Conflict in the Land of Israel Hardback


Hebron Jews explores the history of the Jews of Hebron, the oldest and now most vilified and controversial Jewish community in the world.

Spanning three thousand years, from the biblical narrative of Abraham's purchase of a burial cave for Sarah to the violent present, it offers a controversial analysis of a community located at the crossroads of the Israeli-Palestinian struggle over national boundaries and the internal Israeli struggle over the meaning Jewish statehood.
