Reinventing World Jewry: How to Design the World Jewish Polity

By Daniel J. Elazar

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), 1996

The author describes how, in the wake of historical political developments and greater levels of both acceptance and assimilation of Jews, world Jewry as a whole has begun to face the prospect of reinventing itself as old tasks and functions have become obsolete and new ones now demand attention. This report outlines the institutional and functional basis of the world Jewish polity today and proposes an institutional basis for restructuring the world Jewish arena based on the tasks and functions it must be prepared to undertake.
