Prolonged Singlehood among Religious Zionists
Religiosity and Individualization in Late Modernity
סדרת Religious Zionism: Past, Present, Future
By Ari Engelberg

In late modernity a new reality has been created in Western societies: young people are in no hurry to get married and prefer to enjoy the freedom before they settle down, and at the same time expectations about relationships and marriage have changed. These changes are related to the processes of individualization and an increase in the importance of the individual. In recent decades, this phenomenon has also reached the religious Zionist public in Israel, and urban concentrations of single men and women have been created - the 'bachelor swamps'. In religious Zionism this phenomenon was perceived as a problem, and over the years various enterprises have tried to 'dry up the swamps'.
The book describes the encounter between religious Zionism and this global phenomenon as it is reflected in the narratives of religious single men and women. The questions at the center of the book are: What sets the courtship process apart in the Zionist-religious public and what can be learned from it about expectations regarding relationships? How do single men and women deal with the tension between the Western-liberal narrative that states that single years are used to accumulate experiences, and the religious view that encourages starting a family at a young age? What are the challenges facing single men and women in a religion that is family and community? And what is the position of rabbis and educators in relation to these issues? The book follows the fascinating story of those who are at the forefront of the encounter between Orthodoxy and late modernity and carve for themselves a new life path that previous generations of Torah and mitzvot observant Jews did not know.
