Jewish consciousness provides the justification and foundations of the Jewish collective enterprise. The future of the Jewish people depends on our ability to promote a consciousness of belonging to the People, its history, legacy, and destiny.


Consciousness - Peoplehood is the collective consciousness of the Jewish People. The consciousness that constitutes our collective social enterprise, our ever-evolving civilization, our aspiration to improve the world and our sense of solidarity and mutual responsibility.

The Peoplehood consciousness is the collective dimension of Judaism that frames and defines our essence and story as a people. It constitutes our communal structures and provides rationale, context and mission for the Jewish organizational system.

This consciousness which is dynamic and pluralistic turns the identity of Jews as individuals into an identity of members of a people. Developing the sense of belonging to the People, its history, legacy, and destiny, is therefore crucial to the Jewish future.
