Post-Ethnic, But Not Post-Peoplehood

By Noam Pianko

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, March 2011

Conceptions of Jewish peoplehood unable to come to terms with collective bonds linked to family and historical ties will fail to capture the imagination of those inspired by the possibilities of connection to a larger story. At the same time, Jewish people hood can only thrive in America today by making peoplehood broader than a dependency on one's familial ties.
