This article focuses on the theory that Israel should play a central role in Jewish peoplehood education. In the context of the second Lebanon War, Hoffmann highlights the growing gap between Israel and Diaspora Jews. He views the concept of Jewish peoplehood as an entry point for disconnected young Jews to reconnect. With three necessary elements – inspiring educators, compelling content and transformative experiences – he sees education as holding the power to engage young people with their identity, with Israel education showing the potential to provide these resources. "Peoplehood is a unifying concept that can encompass all aspects of Judaism, and Israel education is the ideal "gateway" to Jewish Peoplehood."
