American Jews and Israel: A Study in Political Conduct

By Gary S. Schiff

World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1976

The author, Professor of Jewish Studies and Political Science at City College, City University of New York, aims to examine the political relationship of the American Jewish community to Israel, as focused in the 1973 crisis, and particularly as expressed via the 'community relations' mechanism. He maps out the reality of the American Jewish community after the Yom Kippur war and predicts several directions the community would be likely to advance toward in the future.
