Jewish Diplomacy at a Crossroads

Jewish Diplomacy at a Crossroads

(p.27) 2 Jewish Diplomacy at a Crossroads

David Engel

NYU Press

This chapter examines Jewish diplomacy in the year 1929, with particular emphasis on the deaths of three individuals: Louis Marshall, Leon Reich, and Lucien Wolf. It first considers the significance for Jewish–Arab relations of the convening of the Constituent Assembly of the Jewish Agency for Palestine on August 14, 1929, in Zürich. It then discusses the arguments of Marshall, Reich, and Wolf as staunch advocates and prime movers of the conception that predicated security for Jews on the restriction of state sovereignty by agencies of the international community. It also explains how a crisis in Zionist–British relations forced the non-Zionists who had joined the Jewish Agency to close ranks behind the Zionist leadership. It argues that the deaths of Marshall, Reich, and Wolf symbolized the end of one era and the beginning of another.

Keywords:   security, Jews, state sovereignty, Jewish diplomacy, Louis Marshall, Leon Reich, Lucien Wolf, Jewish–Arab relations, 1929, Jewish Agency for Palestine
