Jewish Identities in the New Europe free pdf How do the Jews of today's Europe-east and west-regard themselves, fifty years after the Holocaust? Do they perceive themselves as a religious minority, an ethnic group, or simply as ordinary members of the wider European cultures in which they live? How do they regard the wider non-Jewish community, and how do they relate to the Jews of other European countries? To what extent is Israel a factor in forging these relationships? The contributors to this book are authorities in their respective subjects, and many have significant international reputations. Together they cover a wide range of topics from different perspectives. Among the problems considered are: what the future holds for the Jews of Europe- what it means to be Jewish in the countries of eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, and Hungary are considered in detail by local experts)- hopes and uncertainties in religious trends- and the likely development of interfaith relations, as seen by both Jews and Christians. A well-argued introduction identifies the points of convergence, the contradictions, and the myths implicit in the different analyses and teases out the main conclusions and implications. Timely, authoritative, and accessible, this book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to know about the contemporary concerns of the Jews of Europe.
