(p.113) Thirteen The Jewish State and the World Jewish Congress
The Legacy of German Jewry

Hermann Levin Goldschmidt

Fordham University Press

This chapter focuses on the State of Israel and the World Jewish Congress, two different political bodies founded by the Jewish people to achieve equality. The role of the State of Israel is to defend against the danger that the World Jewish Congress might come to resemble other exclusively transnational entities, while the role of the World Jewish Congress is to guard the Jewish State from becoming too much like other nations. This chapter explains how this dual set of national and transnational rights and responsibilities was achieved.

Keywords:   State of Israel, World Jewish Congress, Jewish people, equality, political bodies, transnational entities
