The CV’s Role in the Development of a Jewish Sphere in Germany

This article will describe the role the CV played from its founding until 1933 in the development of the Jewish sphere. Different periods will be examined: the Kaiserreich, the Weimar period, and the last years of the Weimar Republic. It will discuss the causes of the growth of the Jewish sphere and the reasons behind the CV’s involvement in it, mainly the attempt to keep the Jewish public – and especially the youth – within the ‘right’ kind of social and ideological framework, in the face of growing competition from other groups, both within and outside of Jewish society.
