Israel as a Spiritual Center for the Diaspora

By Eliezer Schweid

Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, May 1988

The author discusses the conceptual cultural infrastructure of the institutionalized interrelations between Israel and the Diaspora and evaluates the trends and conceptions directing this activity. The author argues that Judaism is studied with different emphases and approaches in the Yeshiva and academic worlds. This process changed the dynamics of Diaspora Jewry investment in Jewish and Hebrew studies in Israel. The author concludes that today, Jews do not have one spiritual center uniting them and he offers several recommendations for improving, expanding, and advancing these relations.
