Peoplehood -- Thin and Strong: Rethinking Israel-Diaspora Relations for a New Century

By Yehudah Mirsky

Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI), October 2010

This paper is being presented to the JPPI's October 2010 consultation in order to guide and stimulate discussion. It certainly does not seek to provide the last word in Israel-Diaspora relations, a well-worn subject which, after decades of discussion, still regularly evades hard-and-fast understanding. It seeks rather to trace basic avenues of thought and suggest policy-relevant directions that will reframe the issue, as demanded by the imperatives of our times. It begins with some conceptual foundations, proceeds to some of the political issues bedeviling Israel-Diaspora ties, turns to basic educational challenges, and closes with some hopefully stimulating insights and questions for further thought.

Topic: Israel Education, Political Behavior, Diaspora Relations, Peoplehood, Israel-Diaspora Relations, Policy, Diaspora, Jewish Identification, Statehood, Politics, Zionism
