The JCCs as Gateways to Jewish Peoplehood

The JCCs as Gateways to Jewish Peoplehood / The Peoplehood Papers 20, October 2017. Editor: Shlomi Ravid.

In many respects JCCs are the embodiment of Jewish Peoplehood. By design they represent Jewish spaces that provided, for generations of Jews, a gateway to Jewish civilization and the Jewish people. As communal agents and engines of Jewish civilization they are also confronted by the current challenges facing the Jewish community and the need to operate in a changing environment and context. In this collection of essays, we set out to explore how JCCs approach and implement the role of being the gateway to Jewish Peoplehood.
