Contradictory Constructions of “Jewish” in Britain’s Political and Legal Systems

Contradictory Constructions of “Jewish” in Britain’s Political and Legal Systems

(p.250) (p.251) Toward a Broader View of Jewish Rebuilding after the Holocaust
The Social Scientific Study of Jewry

David J. Graham

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the contradictory definition of “Jewish” in the legal and political systems in Great Britain. It explains the ethnicity-based definition of Jewish in the legal system and the faith-based definition in the political system. It suggests that both definitions are not completely correct and accurate and highlights the need for subgroups to be defined, for practical and for functional reasons.

Keywords:   Jewish, legal system, political system, Great Britain, ethnicity, faith
