The lives of Jews in the Diaspora was complex and more varied than is commonly understood. For starters, there was never a formal edict exiling Jews from Israel. In fact, a population of Jews remained in Israel, from the destruction of the Second Temple on through Independence. The question, then, is, why do Jews speak of themselves has having been exiled?  And what does Israel's existence mean in defining modern Jewish identity?
