Abstract:

Jewish continuity and outreach cannot be understood without a clarification of the term "Jewish identity," which can be seen as a struggle for inner coherence and wholeness in the face of the fragmentation imposed by modernity. The concept of Jewish identity can best be understood by a qualitative approach that incorporates values and world view. This article presents such a framework for Jewish identity.
