Religious Party Supporters in Israel

(p.229) Chapter Five Between Zionism and Judaism?
Beyond Sacred and Secular
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines political support for religious parties in Israel. It suggests that the explanations of religious party support in Israel present a microcosm of the ongoing conceptual debates in the social sciences in general, and political science in particular. The chapter explores the analytical potential of alternative explanations of party support, and considers the perception of religious partisans themselves and the political platforms of the parties. It also explains that Mafdal and Shas both express novel ideological syntheses and serve as transformative movements within Israel's religious blocs and also partially its secular blocs.

Keywords:   religious parties, political support, Israel, religious partisans, political platforms, Mafdal, Shas, ideological syntheses, transformative movements
