This chapter examines Franz Rosenzweig's views on the questions of nationality, language, and translation in his Jüdische Rundschau. It analyzes the role of German, Jewish, and German-Jewish exemplarity in Jacques Derrida's philosophical nationality project, and puts forward Derrida Rosenzweig's views on Jewish existence and Hermann Cohen's views on German Judaism to pursue the question of (Jewish) identity or belonging through the optic of exemplarity. The chapter also considers Derrida's views on the debate between Rosenzweig and Gershom Scholem on the issue of translation and sacred language.
