The Jews and Their Future: A Conversation on Judaism and Jewish Identities

by Esther Benbassa & Jean-Christophe Attias - £17.99  Zed Books (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781842773918 | ISBN 10: 1842773917

This provocative and illuminating dialogue explores the very foundations of our culture with questions such as: What if the Jews are not the "descendants" of the Hebrews? If medieval judeophobia cannot be identified with modern anti-semitism? If Zionism has succeeded precisely thanks to its failures? If the time has come to stop denying the tensions that exist between Israel and the Diaspora? Between Ashkenazis and Sephardis? Between fundamentalists and liberals? And if, in particular, the transformation of the memory of the Holocaust into what amounts to a secular religion is now the main barrier to the universalism that, with exile and celebration of life, has always been at the heart of Jewish experience?
