This chapter traces the employment of liturgy and religious symbols in grassroots social movement protest. It shows how a social movement that offers an explicitly Jewish critique of Israeli policies and the American Jewish establishment can, at the same time, substantively expand and alter the meaning of Jewish traditions. The grassroots process generates new forms of religiocultural and historical literacy as well as new authorities.
