Description
European Jews have begun to reassert their own traditions in contrast to both America and Israel. This book addresses some of the characteristics of these developments in Germany: the transnational character of German Jewry, its relationship to the state and to other minorities, particularly Muslims, the astonishing revival of Jewish studies and Jewish culture especially among non-Jews and, most of all, the influx after 1989 of Russian-speaking Jews who are often at the forefront of redefining Jewish life. In these respects, Germany has become a laboratory of the ways in which Jewish life in Europe might develop in the future.
