The upheaval and mass migrations of WWI led to new encounters between Eastern and Western European Jews, and narrowed the divide between these two cultures. This roundtable examines the consequences of these encounters and the origins of the Jewish East-West division. With Steve Aschheim (Hebrew University), Hasia Diner (NYU), and Anson Rabinbach (Princeton University).
