This chapter reviews the Jewish cultural innovation and self-definition in early twentieth-century France that highlights the complex and ambivalent nature of Jewish grappling with the issue of identity in the modern world. It cites French Jews that began to question how they should define Jewishness in a society where Jews enjoyed full political equality. It also talks about writers with Jewish identity who explore biblical themes, traditional Jewish folklore, and issues of identity and assimilation. The chapter looks at journals focusing on Jewish religion, history, and culture that came into being in France between 1900 and 1932. It explores the complex ways in which both 'Jewishness' and 'Frenchness' were renegotiated in the early twentieth century.
