The Jewish World: A World of Diversity

By Judit Bokser Liwerant

International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies (SJPS) at Beit Hatfutsot, September 2010

Professor Bokser Liwerant points to the complexity of defining Jewish Peoplehood. Particular Jewish identities are constituted by an extremely wide range of affiliations and perspectives that can be overlapping, and often seemingly contradictory. Any closenenss index must take these variants into consideration. The Jewish communities of Latin America can serve as model for measuring affiliation and cohesiveness, especially given how well they model the migratory effects of globalization.
