Describes from the perspective of the participant observer, but with a minimum of sociolgical jargon, the intraction generated within and by the members of a small modern Orthodox synagogue located in a large northeastern American city. This is not a book about the religion of Orthodox Jews, for it explains neither their religion nor the essence of their Orthodoxy. Rather, it is about behavior within a conveniently bordered and clearly defined setting, which just happens to be an Orthodox synagogue. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Sociology, Samuel C. Heilman, Jews, Synagogue Life, Orthodox Judaism, Social Life, Customs, Synagogues, Torah Study, Strangers, Shuls, Schnorrers, Prayer, Religion, Jokes, Gossip, Charity, Mechitza, Joking).
