Abstract

Over the past two decades, the Social Sciences have seen the rise of a new the oretical framework in the discourse surrounding religion and secularization, which centers a round the term ‘Post - secular’ . This theoretical framework became dominant in Israel's academic discourse through its utilization in the critical examination of the popular classifications in Israel for religiosity and secularism, and in a rejection of the dichotomy between these terms . Regarding the element of rejecting the dichotomy between religiosity and secularism, those who advocate for post - secularism in Israel’s academic discourse claim that the ‘post - secular’ exposes the impossibility of a Jewish secularism and, in other words, that Jewish secularism hides its own religiosity from itself . In the article, I will critically examine the context of the rise of the post - secular theoretical framework in the Social Sciences, and its use in Israeli academic discourse – and especially the criticism that it ( and neighboring stances )raises regarding the probability of a Jewish secularism . I will maintain that Jewish secularism does not exist merely as a fact based on a kind of false consciousness and suggest a primary outline for the phenomenology of this identity.
