Remarks from the Herzliya Conference

By Naama Sabar-Ben Yeshoshua

International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies (SJPS) at Beit Hatfutsot, October 2009

The author discusses the findings of the Peoplehood Index Project's study on the closeness and distance between Jewish communities in the United States and in Israel, primarily focusing on several methodological criticisms of the study. The author also examines how to reconcile two conflicting messages: one from the field indicating a weakening Jewish identity and a feeling of disassociation and lack of involvement, and one emerging from the initial positive findings of the Peoplehood Index?
