The Peace Process and the Jewishness of Israel

By Daniel J. Elazar

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1995

This article is an excerpt from "The Peace Process and the Jewishness of the Jewish State," published in the Jerusalem Letter/Viewpoints by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, of which the author is president. It is the last of three contributions in a section on "Jewish Individualism and Collective Identity," and it focuses on the difference between commonwealth and civil society in Israel. The article demonstrates a clear movement from the Zionist ideal of a commonwealth to that of a civil society, where the individual is more central. The author also ties this transition to contemporary developments of the peace process in Israel.
