Back to the Future: The Global Jewish Conversation

By Sanford Antignas, Moti Kristal

Center for Jewish Peoplehood Education, November 2012

Before the existence of digital, social media, the Jewish community thrived thanks to a worldwide social network which derived its strength from the absence of a central node. The emergence of the idea of the Jewish nation state changed the nature of the global Jewish conversation. The establishment of the State of Israel caused the Jewish conversation to become polarized, with a focus on unity and the need to reach a false consensus. Technology has allowed the Jewish conversation to return to the pluralism of its roots.
