Israel: The Core Context

By Deborah Housen-Couriel

International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies (SJPS) at Beit Hatfutsot, Fall 2008

The author examines the concept of Jewish peoplehood, focusing on why a renewal of this concept must take place within the boundaries of the State of Israel. She argues that the answer is an inexorable pull many Jews feel toward tribal experiences and arrives at this conclusion through two personal anecdotes about Jews and tribes.
