Interrupting Whiteness: Hatzaad Harishon, Black Jews, and the Expansion of Jewish Identity"

Description:
Hatzaad Harishon (The First Step, 1964-1972)a biracial organization founded by white, liberal Jewsworked hard to expand the scope of Jewish peoplehood to include Black Jews. But it could not take the second step, which would allow black Jews to shape and expand what counts as legitimate Jewish culture. This paper argues that Hatzaad Harishons trajectory calls attention to our need for a new model of rhetorical invention and success, one that Prof. Fernheimer terms interruptive invention. Janice W. Fernheimer is Assistant Professor of Writing, Rhetoric, and Digital Media at the University of Kentucky. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 27, 2013
