Even though "Next year in Jerusalem" forms part of the traditional congratulations exchanged every year at Pesach it does not necessarily reflect a concrete wish to meet in that city, but is an expression of a bond linking Jews geographically as well as historically. It could be said that it has become the norm for Jews to live in Diaspora: that is to live within ones own culture and adapt to foreign countries. In other words, Jews have found a home in homelessness.
The fact that one's ancestors could just as well have immigrated to another country does make a difference. In this case they came to Denmark and that worked out well. However the fact that the choice was more or less fortuitous still deeply affects many Danish Jews.
