Ein heikles Thema der deutsch-jüdischen Nachkriegsgeschichte. Weshalb wollten nicht-jüdische Deutsche zum Judentum konvertieren? Das Judentum ist eine Religions- und Volksgemeinschaft, die nicht missioniert und in der aufgenommene Nichtjuden deshalb religiös einen prekären Status haben. Dass ausgerechnet christliche Deutsche nach 1945 vermehrt zum Judentum konvertierten, irritierte die überlebenden Juden. Barbara Steiner untersucht die Aufnahmebedingungen für Nichtjuden, die Veränderungen der Motive und der biographischen Selbstpräsentation deutscher Konvertiten. Ihre Arbeit basiert neben umfangreichen Archivrecherchen auf der Auswertung von Interviews mit Konvertiten und den aufnehmenden Rabbinern. Die Akzeptanzprobleme deutscher Konvertiten innerhalb der jüdischen Gemeinschaft, die aus ihrem Sonderstatus und dem besonderen historischen Kontext resultierten, werden ebenso erörtert wie deren Reaktionen darauf. Die Autorin kann trotz des von allen Beteiligten gleichermaßen gepflegten Tabus der Konversion erklären, wie es nichtjüdischen Deutschen im Schatten der Schoa gelang, ins Judentum aufgenommen zu werden. Ausgezeichnet mit dem Potsdamer Nachwuchswissenschaftler-Preis 2014.

The contributors to this volume treat pluralism as a concept that is historically and ideologically produced or, put another way, as a doctrine that is embedded within a range of political, civic, and cultural institutions. Their critique considers how religious difference is framed as a problem that only pluralism can solve. Working comparatively across nations and disciplines, the essays in After Pluralism explore pluralism as a "term of art" that sets the norms of identity and the parameters of exchange, encounter, and conflict. Contributors locate pluralism's ideals in diverse sites Broadway plays, Polish Holocaust memorials, Egyptian dream interpretations, German jails, and legal theories and demonstrate its shaping of political and social interaction in surprising and powerful ways. Throughout, they question assumptions underlying pluralism's discourse and its influence on the legal decisions that shape modern religious practice. Contributors do more than deconstruct this theory; they tackle what comes next. Having established the genealogy and effects of pluralism, they generate new questions for engaging the collective worlds and multiple registers in which religion operates.
