Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which illustrates the extent to which Jewish consumerism is both an important realm of scholarly interest as well as a field of inquiry that further illuminates existing studies of politics, art, and economics with questions of integration and acceptance, class, and gender. The book suggests that this endeavor offers new readings of Jewish longings and belongings that point to new directions for the study of Jewish identity, culture, integration and exclusion but also above all significantly widens our concept of culture and makes this realm more important in its own right, alongside legal, political, social, economic, literary, and philosophical investigations of the modern Jewish experience.

Keywords: consumerism; Jewish belongings; Jewish culture; Jewish longings; modern Jewish experience
