The volume brings together a collection of essays on Jewish-related subjects to celebrate Emanuela Trevisan Semi's career and research authored by some former students, friends and colleagues on the occasion of her retirement. Drawing upon the many academic interests and research of Trevisan Semi, one of the most important European scholars of Jewish and Israel Studies, the volume discusses the diversity of Jewish culture both in the diaspora and in Israel. The contributors here wrote their pieces understanding Jewish culture as inscribed in a set of different, yet interrelated, homelands and diasporas, depending on the time and space we refer to, and what this means for communities and individuals living in places as different as West Africa, Poland, Morocco, and Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. At the same time, they discuss the notion of diaspora as being crucial in the formation of the Jewish cultural identity both before and after the birth of the State of Israel.
