"Seek the Welfare of the City to Which I Have Exiled You...": Toward Another Diaspora Manifesto

By Aryeh Cohen

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2004

Cohen describes what he calls the harsh reality of the ongoing morning-after of his decades-long Zionist affair. He no longer believes that Israel is and has to be the center of the Jewish universe: American Judaism is not dying -- rather, it has flourished -- and it stands in a long tradition of Diasporic communities. Diaspora is necessarily a fragmented and fluid identity claiming a tradition that is homeless but sustaining.
