Abstract

The complexity and fluidity of identity formation in the modern era is illustrated by the case study of those who have identified, both Jewish and non—Jewish, with the nineteenth—century politician and writer, Benjamin Disraeli. The appeal of, as well as the revulsion towards, the only leader of a nineteenth-century state who was born Jewish has been immense, even many generations after his death. This article is based on four major case studies drawn from the first half of the twentieth century through to today. They reveal across its time span how more pluralistic, inclusive and less defensive versions of Jewishness have been constructed as well as the persistence of exclusivities that continue to deny or hinder such possibilities.
