This chapter uses the historical record to find an alternate explanation for the specifics of Israeli resource distribution. It argues that the goal of westernization originated in the Enlightenment, spread at least to the elite of Jewish communities around the world, became embedded in the Zionist project, and can account for patterns of inclusion and exclusion among Jewish communities prior to the immigration to Israel. Given its explanatory power for Diaspora dynamics, this chapter contends, westernization projects are likely to have explanatory power for Israeli ethnic and national dynamics as well.
