Israel, the Diaspora and Jewish Identity

Danny Ben-Moshe (Editor), Zohar Segev (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book investigates the significance, contribution, and role played by the State of Israel - ideologically and practically - in the identity of Diaspora Jews. It explores the extent and way Israel features in Diaspora identity through a range of issues including: anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, Jewish continuity, the peace process, pro-Israel lobbying, philanthropy, religious thought, and gender. It also looks at the place of Israel in the identity of Jewish communities in eight countries. A unique feature of this volume is that each chapter is followed by short and insightful viewpoints by Israeli and Diaspora commentators, with the book reflecting a dialogue between these different voices from across the Jewish world.
