The Closeness Index and Peoplehood Capital

By Shlomi Ravid

International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies (SJPS) at Beit Hatfutsot, September 2010

Dr. Ravid contends that in discussing the reality of Jewish closeness, we cannot forget the importance of Peoplehood capital: the advantages and benefits that emerge from being part of the same collective. While programs like Birthright can achieve short-term closeness, to truly achieve sustainable Peoplehood capital, with the resulting trust and sense of partnership, we must educate towards a sense of shared purpose and future.
