Abstract

The meeting with an ultra-Orthodox group in Israel reveals their internal work to protect themselves from the harmful influences of the surrounding society. The new generations call into question the immutable figures of the man devoted to study and of the mother devoted to the family. Male asceticism and feminine virtue change in interaction with the world.
