Theatre has, since the time of the Jewish Enlightenment, served the secular community in its conflict with the religious. This book surveys the secular-religious rift and then describes the enhanced concern of the secular community in Israel for its own Jewishness and its expression in the theatre - especially following the 1967 War. It then moves on to a specific study of the play Bruira and finally reviews the phenomenon of the return to Orthodox Judaism by secular individuals.
