Through the analysis of the communication carried out by the "Jewish University" with the Grand-ducal institutions, this study sheds light on some of the multiple paths of Jewish integration within local groups of right-holders, as well as on ways of Jewish penetration inside Christian political and juridical arenas.
Through the vicissitudes of Jewish pleaders coping with Christian power and on the basis of their pleas, it is possible to write a history of the Jewish political and diplomatic experience.
The case of the Jews of Pitigliano enables to appreciate the multiform dimension of Jewish social experiences in the Diaspora and to approach Jewish communitarian and individual trajectories.

The relationship between the fields within which social movements operate also provides a means to explain how movement participants can become agents for change.
The article discusses the case of British Jewish Israel-critical groups, an example of a movement suspended between several different fields of practice — both local and distant. The internal movement debate around boycotting Israel illustrates how movement activities are channelled by the local fields within which they contend. Their relationship with the distant Palestinian field demonstrates the importance of the influence of external fields in forming social movement ideology.
This model views social movement actors — especially those within distant issue movements — as translators between various fields of practice. This provides a mechanism to explain how challengers within a field can overcome the limitations of internal field habitus and become agents for field transformation. This contribution investigates how the emergence of the first modern Jewish metropolis in Warsaw in the second half of the 19th century challenged traditional visions of community cohesion.
It argues that the acceleration of political and It argues that the acceleration of political and societal change within the Jewish community allowed observant elites to achieve political and cultural hegemony in Warsaw, and thus offers a sui generis pathway of Jewish metropolitan modernization.
This claim is substantiated by following the communal and political involvement of a leading Hasidic civil leader, Joel Wegmeister , co-founder of the first outlets of the Agudat Israel in the Kingdom of Poland before World War One.
