Berkeley native and Israeli immigrant Rachel Leah Jones illustrates just why Ashkenazim are so difficult to pinpoint with this concise yet panoramic look at the ways in which a once-recognizable culture has grown increasingly diverse. Originating in Rhineland before gradually migrating out to the Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, and Poland, the Ashkenazim prove much more varied in ethnicity and tradition than their western German roots may suggest. In addition to exploring the notion that the Ashkenazim are "The Establishment" while the remainder of the population are "The Troublemakers," Jones gets focuses on the growing diversity in this decidedly singular world by examining the various contradictions that ultimately unite them.
