The Continuity of Community Landsmanshaftn in New York and Tel Aviv

By Hannah Kliger

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

The examination of patterns of participation in Jewish ethnic voluntary associations known as landsmanshaftn, makes it possible to trace and interpret paths of ethnic affiliation taken by Jewish immigrants in their new countries of settlement. The purpose of the article is to understand the apparent role of these organizations as vehicles of cultural continuity and change, in order to elucidate the changing meaning of ethnicity and the process by which the boundaries of the ethnic group are shaped and transform.
