This sentiment--expressed within the early Nineteen Seventies by means of an Orthodox Jew in suburban Toronto--captures the essence of the suburban Orthodox Jewish adventure of the past due 20th century. even though hardly linked to postwar suburbia, Orthodox Jews in metropolitan parts around the usa and Canada have effectively mixed suburban life and the tradition of consumerism with a powerful feel of spiritual traditionalism and group unity. through their very life in suburbia, argues Etan Diamond, Orthodox Jewish groups problem dominant assumptions approximately society and spiritual tradition within the 20th century.

Using the historical past of Orthodox Jewish suburbanization in Toronto, Diamond explores different elements of the North American suburban Orthodox Jewish group: sacred areas, synagogues, colleges, kosher houses, and social networks. In a bigger feel, even though, his e-book tells a narrative of the way traditionalist non secular groups have thrived within the such a lot secular of environments. In so doing, it pushes our present figuring out of towns and suburbs and their non secular groups in new directions.
