Chapter Summary

This chapter presents and analyzes the suitability of this Diaspora advocacy-originally intended for the American Jewish community of the 1950s-for today's European Jewish community. The most important and charismatic leader of this group was Abba Hillel Silver. The Diaspora approach to Jewish nationalism led to an ongoing conflict with the major Israeli approaches of the time. The chapter, then, deals with a version of Diaspora advocacy that suffered a nearly unconditional defeat within the post-1948 Jewish and Zionist political arenas-a version whose implied ideological and political option has been long forgotten and, to all appearances, rejected.

Keywords:American Zionist; cultural pluralism; European Jewry
