Jewish Russians

Based on extensive fieldwork, Jewish Russians examines a population in crisis, in a city in crisis, in a state in crisis. Sascha Goluboff examines in depth a single community and the conflicts and struggles—sometimes physically violent ones—over control of its synagogue. She charts the demise of the elderly Russian Jewish community and the rise of a transnational one.
