Chapter 6, ‘Migrating to utopia,’ elaborates a theory of migration, with particular reference to the Yiddish Jews who migrated to the United States in 25 COMING OUT JEWISH the latter part of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This builds on the psychoanalytic theory that I elaborated in the previous chapter in the context of diaspora. This chapter discusses why the Jews have felt ‘at home’ in different ways in the United States, and in Israel, but not in the European states. The third section is more empirical, and deals with issues around race and ethnicity, and Jews and Jewishness, in the United States and Australia.

35 All three had literary-critical backgrounds. 36 Arnold’s work and Hall’s work stand at two ends of the same tradition, the one mapping the means for the construction of a national English culture, the other charting its dissolution as a unified, homogeneous entity.

Jews are often stereotyped as a migratory people and my family on my mother’s side is a small example of this. However, it is foolish, and indeed repeats nineteenth-century prejudice, to think of Jews as, in some way, essentially migratory, that the myth of the Wandering Jew somehow applies to all Jews. The Yiddish Jews of the Pale had been settled there for centuries. Their migration was a consequence of constant and increasing persecution, pogroms, which led to an early and less organised form of the kind of socalled ethnic cleansing that is going on in the Yugoslav province of Kosovo as I write.
