National identity, cultural revival, and national struggle: The world Jewish congress, American Jewry, and the challenge of Jewish Diaspora in the shadow of the Holocaust

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

By actively supporting the restoration of Jewish communities in the European diaspora, American Jews justified their own choice of remaining in the US, next to the Zionist ideal of resettling in Palestine. American Jewish support for European Jews created a clear role for American Jews that broke the potential monopoly of the state of Israel as the sole guardian of Jewish rights.
