This chapter provides the baseline for the book’s exploration of everyday life in Israel-Palestine, exploring how gender structures and normalizes hegemonic narratives, institutions, and politics within Jewish Israeli society. Drawing attention to three central social pillars—fraternity, security, and modernity—the chapter highlights how the mutual constitution of dominant social values and institutions produces a profoundly negative relationship to politics. Here cynicism and alienation emerge as the prevailing terms through which many leftist Jewish Israelis relate to politics, producing an inward-facing “politics of living” that aligns with the central narrative of Zionism.

Keywords:   everyday life, gender, Zionism, fraternity, security, modernity, politics, alienation, cynicism
