Topic: Culture and religion (Religion and religious groups)

The authors claim that for a Mifgash (Encounter) to be successful all participants must feel as if they were citizens (belonging) of a global Jewish group. The Mifgash serves, in their opinion, as a temporary group in which the conditions and opportunities for that belonging are more overt. When the Mifgashim are unsuccessful, the participants come to feel attached to their own national sub-group, not as equal members of the global group. (In Hebrew)
