(p.56) Five Equal Rights, Not Assimilation!
The Legacy of German Jewry

Hermann Levin Goldschmidt

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the challenges faced by the Jews in their quest for equal rights after they have successfully gained full entry to modernity. In this struggle, the Jews were divided in two camps: those who fought for emancipation and equal rights on behalf of each and every citizen, and those who took up the fight against assimilation. Though both groups wanted to have the Jews who were granted equal rights to retain their religious belief, they had to wage a double battle: against the outside world and within the Jewish community.

Keywords:   Jews, equal rights, modernity, emancipation, assimilation
