Making Peoplehood Work: The Institutional Challenge

By Shlomi Ravid

Beit Hatfutsot: The International school for Jewish Peoplehood Studies, 2008

Ravid argues that the concept of "peoplehood," commonly understood to be an abstract, amorphous idea, actually provides the concrete basis for the whole Jewish communal system. He claims that the notion of peoplehood constitutes the communal and institutional framework of Jewish civilization, and he explains that if strengthening Jewish peoplehood does not become a top priority for Jewish institutions, then they are bound to be impacted by its weakening.
