Reflections on Israel, Peoplehood, and a New Jewish World

By Lea C. Waismann

The International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies at Beth Hatefutsoth, October 2009

At the ninth annual Herzliya Conference in February 2009, the concept of "Jewish peoplehood" emerged as an important concept, and the author discusses some of the proposed definitions of the concept and arguments raised by Jewish scholars and thinkers in previous volumes of the Peoplehood Papers. While many questions about the concept still remain, the author urges Jewish educators to use the guidelines provided by panelists and experts in the filed to promote engagement with the process.
