On Jewish Peoplehood

By Steven Bayme, David Harman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 2008

Historically, despite whatever divisions existed between Jews, the sense of unity in peoplehood remained. Now, the authors contend, this sense of peoplehood is unraveling due to deep cultural, religious and ideological divisions. Restoration of this common bond cannot be found in formal education, argues Professor David Harman. Rather, environments and experiences that make Jewishness relevant to the lives of Jewish people must be created. The internet's potential for creating virtual communities makes it potentially a major asset to this mission, Harman contends.
