Germany today boasts the fastest growing population of Jews in Europe. The streets of Berlin abound with signs of a revival of Jewish culture, ranging from bagel shops to the sight of worshipers leaving synagogue on Saturday. With the new energy infused by Jewish immigration from Russia and changes in immigration and naturalization laws in general, Jeffrey M. Peck argues that we must now begin considering how Jews live in Germany rather than merely asking why they would choose to do so. In "Being Jewish in the New Germany," Peck explores the diversity of contemporary Jewish life and the complex struggles within the community - and among Germans in general - over history responsibility, culture, and identity. He provides a glimpse of an emerging, if conflicted, multicultural country and examines how the development of the European Community, globalization, and the post-9/11 political climate play out in this context. With sensitive, yet critical, insight into the nations political and social life, chapters explore issues such as the shifting ethnic/national makeup of the population changes in political leadership and the renaissance of Jewish art and literature.; Peck also explores new forms of anti-Semitism and relations between Jews and Turks - the country's other prominent minority population.
