The theme of JPPI’s most recent Annual Jewish World Dialogue was the constitutional obligation the State of Israel has taken upon itself with respect to Diaspora Jews. During the Dialogue process we listened to the opinions of Jewish leaders abroad and Israelis regarding the question: To what extent is Israeli intervention in Diaspora affairs desirable and what are the preferred ways to realize it? The Dialogue provides a new and interesting perspective on Israel-Diaspora relations.
