When we observe how southern Jewish families eat, we encounter a regional
experience that is unique in American Jewish history. The experience of southern
Jewish immigrants — their small numbers, their geographic isolation, and their
ties to white and black Protestant culture — is reflected in how food continues to
define the southern Jewish experience today. Through their foodways, Jews
became a part of southern life. My work focuses on Jewish families in Savannah,
Georgia, ...

present in the colonial experience of southerners in Savannah, Ga., and
Charleston, S.C. Drawn by the economic opportunities these ports offered as
trading centers, Jewish mercantile families settled in the Lowcountry, established
businesses, and founded ...

Even language itself was analyzed from a “practice” standpoint, as in the brilliant
work of William Hanks (1990). The dust has somewhat cleared from the
battlefield, and one can now take a rather dispassionate view. Practice is
everywhere important, but rules exist. They can be very strict, or they can be mere
vague guidelines. Some communities—orthodox Jews, caste Hindus, and devout
Seventh-Day Adventists, for instance—do structure their foodways tightly enough
to make them ...

Their explanations are suggestive, but do not give ouch aid to those of us
concerned with studying Jewish and other groups today. Modern Judaism ... After
all, the view that the oral Torah is a new creation rather than a derivative of
Biblical exegesis is not difficult for non- orthodox Jewish scholars to accept (

ancient biblical dietary injunctions and the shared history and traditions of the
people. In the United States, there are three general categories of Jewish
practice: Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Though there are always

directives; the Conservative ...
