Israel in Jewish Peoplehood Education

By Alan D. Hoffman

United Jewish Communities (UJC), November 2007

While young Israeli Jews battled Hezbollah guerillas, their Diaspora counterparts enjoyed summer days at the beach. Within the context of the Second Lebanon War, the author explores the relationship between Israel and Diaspora Jews, arguing that Israel must play a central role in Jewish peoplehood education if such education is to have any meaning at all. He discusses the barriers to education, the challenges of modernity and the role of educators in the process of unifying the Jewish people.
