Rachel Leket-Mor has a B.A. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, an M.A. from Tel Aviv University and an M.L.I.S. from the University of Arizona. Prior to her appointment at ASU in 2002, she worked as a Hebrew editor with Israeli publishers.

Description

The current demand for appropriate entertaining titles in the Haredi community in Israel is reflected, among other things, in the growing movie industry led by Haredi producers and directors. This interesting sub-genre of popular Israeli cinema, consisting of male-only actors, is intended for the whole family. Therefore, not only these movies are approved as “G-rated” by rabbis, they are also sold in a CD-Rom format, since in many Haredi households computers are welcome as a work tool, while DVD players are not allowed for religious reasons. Main themes of this genre include, quite surprisingly, quite a lot of military stories (some of them describing adventures of Israeli Mossad agents), comedies, contemporary dramas with Haredi happy endings, Hassidic tales, historical documentaries, as well as “women movies” with moving stories and heartbreaking endings. The presentation will feature segments of some movies and discuss their significance in academic collections as authentic portrayal of Haredi culture in Israel.


“…The script of Koḥam shel Tehilim was rejected because… as if they’ve never even read it, as if they don’t understand the Haredi cinema.”

“15-17% of the [Israeli] population don’t go to the movies, but they have their own movies, andI am their film maker!”

“Say, aren’t we entitled to any cultural life? Is cultural life part of the secular way of life only?”
