Illustrative Events and Affairs

Show Summary Details


Data presenting Haredi nonconformity and deviance are divided between “events” and “affairs.” An event consists of a discrete occurrence. For example, burglary, rape, beating. An affair consists of a series of events (at least three) that may last for a few days, months, or even years, and may include a few discrete events. This chapter provides illustrations of events and affairs from 1948 to 1998 and continues with some discrete illustrations to 2009. The purpose of this chapter is to vivify the type of events and affairs recorded in this study.

Keywords: affairs; deviance; events; nonconformity
