Jewish Peoplehood Strategy? National Policy? Or Merely a Buzzword?

By Ahava Zarembski

Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), United Jewish Communities (UJC), November 2007

The author examines two watershed events that opened Israeli policy makers' eyes to the issues of Jewish peoplehood and Israel-Diaspora relations to better understand why issues related to Jewish peoplehood are not approached more strategically or at all. The author argues that besides security, the Israeli policy system is ill-equipped to relate to most issues with clarity, depth and knowledge that also adapts to the fast pace of the policy world. She also argues that while times have changed, Israel-Diaspora institutions have not, and she offers suggestions for improvement and courses of action.
