Chapter Summary

The Jewish population in Germany has increased enormously over the past decades. RSJs are now the overwhelming majority of Germany's Jewry. Many of them have resided in this country for less than a decade, are not German citizens, and do not know the language frequently. There is a language barrier between many RSJs and Vets - though it does not seem to be too rigid. When we compare RSJ and Vet young adults, it appears that attachment to Judaism is stronger among Vets than among RSJs, and that this is also the case with belonging to the German nation. Several diachronic and synchronic comparisons can be made with regard to Jews in Germany today. These comparisons can relate to Jewry as a whole as well as RSJs in Germany who form the vast majority of Jews in today's Germany.
