  • “The fellow members of even the smallest nation will never know most of their fellow members, meet them, or even hear of them. Yet in the minds of each, lives the image of the communion...Communities are to be distinguished, not by their falsity or genuineness, but in the style in which they are imagined.”

    Benedict Anderson

  • The story/ies of the Jewish People, consist of:

    • Historical memory

    • Hebrew and Jewish languages

    • The world of Jewish values

    • Israel as a multidimensional concept

    • Jewish creation and creativity

    • Jewish practices and spirituality

  • We are the narrators

    of the Jewish story

  • More than the Jewish people have

    kept their story;

    their story has kept the Jewish

    people.
