Summary "Living in the midst of a community of Chassidic Jews, I have become increasingly aware of and sensitized to, the subtle interplay between the folk-mythology values and symbols, rites, and rituals of this sect (subculture) and their norms of behavior with regard to their status in the "real" (i.e. secular) world. ... The formation of a civilian anti-Crime patrol, known as the Maccabees, in which ideal motifs (1) Justice, (2) Authority, (3) Power, and (4) Prestige appear... reminded me of the tendency of the Chassidim to invoke ...historical traditions and symbols of Potency, under specific secular conditions."--page 8. "I will regard the Mccabee anti-crime patrol as a secularized, rationalize[d] up-dated version of the Golem." --page 14. Includes press clippings, chiefly from the Jewish Press; interview with Rabbi Samuel Shrage, founder of the patrol.
