Jewish anarchism has long been marginalized in histories of anarchist
thought and action. Anna Elena Torres and Kenyon Zimmer edit a
collection of essays that recovers many aspects of this erased
Contributors bring to light the presence and persistence of Jewish
anarchism throughout histories of radical labor, women’s studies,
political theory, multilingual literature, and ethnic studies.
These essays reveal an ongoing engagement with non-Jewish radical
cultures, including the translation practices of the Jewish anarchist
press. Jewish anarchists drew from a matrix of secular, cultural, and
religious influences, inventing new anarchist forms that ranged from
mystical individualism to militantly atheist revolutionary cells.
With Freedom in Our Ears brings together more than a dozen
scholars and translators to write the first collaborative history of
international, multilingual, and transdisciplinary Jewish anarchism.
