Radical Jewish?

This spring, the Jewish Museum Berlin dedicates
itself to this movement in an exhibition that illuminates
its birth, its protagonists, and the frequently political
discussions revolving around “Radical Jewish Culture.”
You can read the seminal text of the time in this
special issue of our JMB Journal: in 1992, Marc Ribot
and John Zorn wrote a manifesto titled “ Just what is
this Radical New Jewish Culture?”—formulating for
the first time questions that would continue to occupy
the New York music world for nearly twenty years.

The cover of the third issue of the JMB Journal shows the businessman Oved Ben Ami (1905-1989) depicted as a whimsically smiling angel by the Israeli photographer Micha Kirshner. This issue takes a look at "business" from perspectives as diverse as Jewish economic ethics, stereotypes suggestive of a special relationship between Jews and money, and reflections on politics, history and biography. Among the authors are the writer Doron Rabinovici, Corinne and Robert Sauer, both founders of the Jerusalem Institute for Market Studies, as well as Nathan Kaplan, a young business consultant.

Jewish history is also migration history. For this reason in this second issue of the JMB Journal we take a close look at historical and recent flows of immigration and integration. Among the authors are educationist Micha Brumlik, New York sociologist Nancy Foner and Dalia Moneta, head of the social center of the Jewish community in Frankfurt.
