JMB Journal 8: The Whole Truth... Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Jews
Special Issue for the Exhibition of the Same Name
The JMB Journal No. 8 accompanies the exhibition The Whole Truth: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Jews. In 100 pages and nine essays, it addresses questions pertaining to Judaism and Jewish identity. And so, for example, the Swiss literary scholar Caspar Battegay explores the possibility of representing "Jewish normality" in contemporary German film, the British columnist and documentary filmmaker Toby Lichtig analyzes the debates surrounding the practice and ritual of circumcision, the Berlin-based columnist Leeor Engländer zeros in on stereotypes, and the Talmud scholar Daniel Boyarin answers questions on Shabbat, sex, and Satan.
