(p.1) Introduction
Arab and Jewish Women in Kentucky

Nora Rose Moosnick

University Press of Kentucky

Arabs and Jews are inevitably construed as opposing forces engaged in conflict of biblical and global proportions. Renderings of Arabs and Jews often overlook the many close and complicated relationships that they have forged today and historically. In this introductory chapter, the stage is set for the chapters that follow-narratives that confront superficial notions of Arabs and Jews-noting that the chapters in which the stories are told an Arab and a Jewish woman are paired around common themes. This introductory chapter ends by speaking to the context in which the stories were gathered including the documentarian's perspective focused on marginalization.

Keywords:   Arab American women, Jewish women, marginalization, anti-Semitism, context, Kentucky
