The Federation Peoplehood Agenda: Toward Convenantal Communities (A Working Paper)

By Eric Levine

United Jewish Communities (UJC), November 2007

The author argues that the United Jewish Communities (UJC) and the Federations should construct a meaningful and effective plan of action to enhance the commitment to peoplehood in the Federation community and far beyond. He explains that Federations have the opportunity to make an important contribution to the public discourse by giving new meaning to the notion of Jewish peoplehood conceptually and practically. He discusses the benefits of doing so for the Federations and the Jewish people as well as the costs of not strengthening their commitment to Jewish peoplehood.
