What is Jewish Peoplehood? And is it the Right Question? From Defining Peoplehood to Creating Peoplehood Capital

By Shlomi Ravid

United Jewish Communities (UJC), November 2007

Ravid explores the concept of Jewish "peoplehood," and he offers an alternative approach to understanding and teaching the concept based on the notion of what he calls building "peoplehood capital." In combining "peoplehood" and "capital," Ravid discusses his hopes to connect Jews from around the world through a variety of different projects in an attempt to cultivate relationships, connections and, in a sense, "re"-building the Jewish people.
