Jews at Home

This concluding chapter challenges the reader to think analytically about ‘postmodern Jewish life’ as it unfolds globally. It is also a response to chapters 11 to 14 even as it explores the patterns of Jewish culture as they occur across multiple continents. Here, the chapter asserts that the history of Judaism or, for that matter, that of Yiddishkeit more generally, is one of constant change. Furthermore, it considers that it might be worthwhile to entertain the smallest possibility that some changes represent a difference of degree while others represent a difference of kind. Further musings on what it means to be Jewish in different contexts (especially outside of America) are also contemplated, as the chapter considers what the futures of these non-American Jewries might be.

Keywords:   postmodern Jewish life, American Jewry, Australian Jewry, Israel, Judaism, Jewish history, Jewish culture, German Jewry
