Peoplehood and Closeness

By Jonathan Boyd

The International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies at Beth Hatefutsoth, September 2010

In this article, Jonathan Boyd presents the four aspects of how Jews achieve closeness and peoplehood. Jews are connected through their shared values, through their shared fear (from their history and memory), through dialogue, and through shared culture, culture that can range from a love of music to holiday celebration, to particular places that evoke similar emotions. All four contribute to the optimistic and positive notion of Jewish peoplehood.
