Abstract

This article addresses the transnational and diaspora orientations of Ukrainian Jewish youth at home, as articulated in discourse and practice. It suggests that young Ukrainian Jews locate their everyday experiences and relationships within transnational space, thereby transnationalising the local and localising the transnational. Within this local/global continuum, a vibrant transnational Ukrainian Jewish youth culture is emerging with its own unique characteristics, which simultaneously challenge assumptions about practices of diaspora and transnationalism and seek to redefine these concepts and their distinctions.
