    Will you take it through the ages or in the present day (I think you're title leans towards the latter)?

    What sources you want to use will differ depending on how big the essay is and what level you are writing for.

    Here's one book, although the focus is more on relations with the dominant culture and ruling power than on the effects on the jews themselves, although it obviously has good stuff on that score.

    That would be both rude and would actually tell you very little, as there is not likely to be any significant variation in what you would find. All in all, a slightly inappropriate, as well as puzzling, suggestion

    Quite. But if you do say what level you are writing for, and what sort of assignment, it will help us pinpoint some likely sources for you.

    Hello Rac1,

    I'm not Jewish. The best way for the OP to obtain research for the paper is by talking to Jewish people concerning their beliefs and differences.

    Peace and God bless you

    Ultra-Orthodox Jews vs secular Jews. One group is full of religious extremist nutcases, the other group is full of rational genius' who have achieved more per capita than any other religious group.
    Hello,

    I personally believe it is best to not compare Jewish people who believe in God and believe the Tanakh is true with Jewish people who do not believe in God who insult those who do. That is possibly one reason why many Jewish Orthodox people are not incredibly vocal about their beliefs: because of being used to being insulted and persecuted. Sad to say, many groups have persecuted Jewish people who believe in God for centuries. Horribly, "Christians" have persecuted Jewish people who believe in God and have force converted many, killed many, insulted many, and treated many Jewish people (both those who believe in God and those who don't) in a very rude and mean way.

    I personally don't think Jewish Orthodox people allow themselves to be psychologically harmed by the insults of Jewish people who don't believe in God, as well as Christians. However, i do believe many are not as vocal about what they believe because of all the abuse they have suffered at the hands of people who don't believe like they do.

    Peace and may God help everyone to live in peace, regardless if they believe in God or not, regardless if they are "secular" or what group of belief in God they have.

    There is a very fine line between being an ultra-Orthodox Jew and a Jew who believes in God but isn't so extreme in their views. Judaism is as broad as any religion, after all.

    Ultra-orthodox =/= extremist fanatic.

    I think it is a sad indictment on the cognitive thought processes of people in our society, that most of us (including me) opened this thread expecting to find an anti-Semitic rant haha
