Germany has long played a key role in European-Jewish history. Jews probably arrived together with Roman legions in the Rhineland and the Danube valley and signs of the presence of Jews in 321 have been found in Cologne. As early as the eighteenth century, some scholars and rabbis had started preaching new attitudes toward Judaism. The so-called "Haskala", the Jewish movement of Enlightenment, developed in Berlin between 1770 and 1815. In December 1945, Reform Rabbi Leo Baeck, a leading figure of Progressive Judaism and a survivor of Theresienstadt concentration camp, was convinced that the era of Jews in Germany was over for good. The ripple effects of the Shoa spread everywhere. The RSJs and Veteran Jews as a whole - as an intricate collage of visions of collective identities, social boundaries, and tenets that singularize it as a distinct entity.

Chapter Summary

[

This part of the investigation aspired to factor in the feelings and analyses of leading figures in the present-day Jewish population of Germany, and their opinions about the "burning issues" on this population's agenda. This chapter presents transcripts of 24 face-to-face interviews that were conducted from 2008 to 2010. They reveal the way in which, at the time of the research, the people in charge - Vets and RSJs - saw the major aspects of the development of Germany's new Jewry, and which perspectives inspire them, as crucial actors in the scene.
