Chapter Summary

The case of this chapter is the question: can the Jewish dispersion in the modern time be a unique prototype model of a transnational diaspora. In principle, the two terms uniqueness and prototype contradict each other. The historical level is unique and the political one may serve as a universal prototype by organizational activities in various social, political, and educational aspects. In the nineteenth century, the dividing tendency included three political and cultural types. The first type was assimilation, the second type was the religious Reform movement in Germany, and the third type was the Bund in Russia. The State of Israel created a new type of relations between Jewish transnational diasporas, which may be described as a combination of normal general attitude between diaspora and homeland, but also as a unique Jewish phenomenon in the context of history, religion, and present political status.

Keywords: Jewish Transnational Diaspora; religious reform movement
