Tel Aviv and the Flowering of Jewish Renewal

By Ruth Calderon

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Winter 2010

The author describes secular cultural renewal in Tel Aviv. She states that the momentum of this renaissance resulted from the interaction between individual ground-breakers in Israel and North America, who together refined Zionist Judaism. On the institutional level, the UJA-Federation of New York was a pioneer in the identification and support of this cultural process from its outset, by providing both programmatic and financial support for a variety of initiatives, thereby helping propel the Hebrew culture movement into the 21st century. UJA-Federation has been particularly active in Tel Aviv - the hub of Israeli cultural creation - and a beacon for other federations to follow here and in other locations throughout Israel.
