Title
L’éthos reconstructionniste ou comment donner du sens à l’expérience rituelle contemporaine de Juifs Montréalais
Abstract
An ethnographic portrait of Montreal's Jewish Reconstructionist congregation Dorshei Emet through a combined analysis of rituals and members' discourses. The author explains that the Dorshei Emet rituals transmit the reconstructionist philosophy and a certain ethos to its attendees, who assimilate them in various ways. For some members who do not believe in God or who are agnostics, ritual becomes the expression of a connexion to Jewish tradition through community life. The author analyzes the religious community's role in its members' everyday lives and the role of the members in it. Above all, he points out, the aim is to apprehend the value that members attribute to their participation to rituals. The author gives special attention to the meaning that religion has in members' life trajectories. Congregation Dorshei Emet was founded by Rabbi Lavy Becker in 1960.
