The Diaspora and the Future of Jewry

In spite of great odds, persecution, the Holocaust and secular assimilation, the people of Israel have been preserved as identifiably Jewish though they were exiled around the world in the diaspora for two thousand years.

In Leviticus 23:42 the generations of Israel are commanded to dwell or “sit” in temporary shelters (“tabernacles”) for one week of the autumn season to identify with the existence of the children of Israel when they lived in temporary shelters (“sukkot”) in the wilderness.
