This almanac is about the whole spectrum of consensus and dissent in the Jewish world, and not least about the gray areas in which the overarching or the not-at-all can be located.
Since the last decade, Western societies have been increasingly characterized by polarization, be it in social, political or cultural terms. This is also true, or perhaps even more so, for intra-Jewish and Israeli disputes. For Israel, of course, this means first and foremost the debate about possible solutions to the Middle East conflict and the relationship between the Orient and the Occident. Or the discussion about one's own position in dealing with the reappraisal of colonial history. But there are also unusual ways of reaching consensus: The government formed in Jerusalem in 2021, for example, unites various coalition partners who could not be further apart ideologically.
