WG6: Changes in Contemporary Judaism:Judaism and Jews in Contemporary Societies

This working group has been created since 2011 and focuses on changes in contemporary Judaism and Jewish society. It is a reflection from within the community itself, our thoughts about change extends to the following questions:

  • Where do Jews live today?
  • What can we say about their recent migrations?
  • What about Israel?
  • What about women in judaism?  What are their real and their symbolic places in contemporary societies?
  • Questions on the permanence and rise of antisemitism in Europe? in Muslim countries?

This working group will allow for a reflection intersecting concepts from Sociology, Anthropology, History, Psycho-Sociology, etc.
