Chapter Summary

The first major international Jewish gathering of the post-Communist world—in Europe—reflected fears about the future, not the hopes for a revival of European Jewry. The fact is that while the deteriorating international context upsets assumptions about the possible path of European Jewry, most of the problems that European Jews now faced were of their own making or the making of Jews from elsewhere. Failure to achieve the four goals of becoming an effective third pillar, developing a 'European Jewish identity', creating effective pan- European organizations and delivering sustained support to the communities in former Communist countries makes the question mark at the end of the title of this conference stand out in stark relief.
