For Israelis, the natural collective identity is Israeli, and being part of a national majority in the Jewish State is not conducive to a Jewish Peoplehood conversation. Jewish Peoplehood is not really part of their identity. They recognize the importance of the world Jewry in times of crisis, but they lack a general interest in Jewish challenges, even those that affect them. Israel will lose on three fronts if this attitude continues: diminishing ties to world Jewry; lockout from being a part of the continued development of Jewish civilization; loss of influence on the overall state of Jewish Peoplehood. What can be done? Acclimate to the Peoplehood ethos. Refresh the interpretation of Zionism to allow for global Jewish partnership. Introduce concept of peoplehood, amiut , into the Israeli educational system. Finally, initiate programs for Israelis to travel to Jewish communities abroad.
