The establishment of the League of Nations created a new platform for Jewish advocacy and novel modes for its expression. The League and other international organizations became arenas of competition over the Jewish voice: The capacity – and legitimacy – of representing Jewish interests and claims at the international level. In this talk, Rotem Giladi recounts episodes of that contestation and points to its ideological dimension.
