Abstract

This article explores the interaction between the Sephardi community of Jerusalem and other Jewish communities in the diaspora and the Holy Land in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Looking at several moments of interaction and tension, it shows how the competition for raising and allocating funds raised in the diaspora in support of the Jewish communities in Palestine contributed to the emergence of what is called here “sub-ethnic” Jewish identities, often pitting the Sephardim of Jerusalem, who were Ottoman subjects, against Jewish immigrants from non-Ottoman lands in Europe and North Africa.
