New Book: Contemporary Jewish Communities
This week, De Gruyter published Prof. Lilach Lev Ari’s new book, Contemporary Jewish Communities in Three European Cities: Challenges of Integration, Acculturation and Ethnic Identity. The Kantor Center was proud to support Prof. Lev Ari’s research that resulted in the publication of this new monograph, which expands and builds upon a report she authored for the Center in 2019. Contemporary Jewish identity, integration and acculturation in Europe has become an increasingly relevant topic amid rising incidents of antisemitism in Europe but reliable research on the present state of Jewish identity in Europe is scarce. In Contemporary Jewish Communities, Prof. Lev Ari examines three ethnically diverse communities – Paris, Brussels, and Antwerp – to shed light on the identity and acculturation of the Jewish minority in Europe.
