A Global People

By Shaul Kelner

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2004

Kelner considers the meaning of globalization for Israel, which is being forced to choose between a vision of statehood that is primarily economic and universalistic or primarily cultural and particularistic. He sees globalization also as an opportunity that can help tie Israel closer to a worldwide Jewish people, even as it makes Israel more vigorously multicultural. In other words, globalization offers the rationale and the means to modernize Israel's Jewish mission and reshape Jewish peoplehood.
