This chapter discusses the final stage in the German Jews' achievement of full equal legality and full civil emancipation. In 1860, the Alliance Isráelite Universelle was founded in Paris, France, and simultaneously Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalischer convened the memorable first conference on the settlement of Palestine in his residence in Thorn. The kind of pressure these events exerted to develop and express Jewish “nationality“ became apparent in the memorable year of 1897, a year that witnessed no fewer than four responses that would embrace Jewry worldwide.
