Judaism: Religion, Culture and Nationality
What are the essential components of Jewish religion? What is the relation between Judaism as a religion and its other functions, namely Judaism as a cultural heritage and legacy, and Judaism as a national identity? Is a distinction between these facets artificial or necessary in order to perceive changes and processes within the Jewish world?
