Nation Building and Social Conflict

By Charles Hoffman

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), April 1996

One of the most successful models of effective Israel-Diaspora cooperation in recent years has been Project Renewal -- the hands-on involvement of world Jewry in upgrading the quality of life in disadvantaged communities and neighborhoods in Israel. This article, the first of three articles discussing the project, is an abridged chapter from Charles Hoffman's valuable book Project Renewal: Community and Change in Israel (1988), and it provides the project's background. The author describes the historical events that led many neighborhoods in Israel to distress, and the decision to form a project that will help deal with this problem.
