This chapter discusses the degree of integration of Jews with the non-Jewish environment and the bonds within the Jewish community. Although ostracized from German cultural life, Jews held fast to German culture and learned more and more about Jewish authors and Jewish history. A strengthened Jewish communal life and a return to Jewish holidays at home were also accompanied by an intellectual return to Judaism.
