Globalization and the Rebirth of European Jewry

By Diana Pinto

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2006

The author contends that the Internet and increased European networking have allowed many Jews in Europe who felt alienated from traditional communities to discover that there is a Judaism that is open and welcoming while still respecting some traditional beliefs. As with all globalization, state-sanctioned Jewish monopolies have been broken, to the benefit of multiple Jewish voices. She concludes that globalization has enriched, not impoverished, European Jewry.
