Review of the Year (2005) in the United States: Jewish Communal Affairs

By Lawrence Grossman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2005

Plans for resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict stalled in late 2003 but the U.S. continued to promote the peace process. Jewish campus organizations struggled to remain peaceful in the face of anti-Israeli sentiment from Palestinian students and faculty. Talk of an alleged Jewish role in pursuing the Iraq War reemerged, after disappearing in 2003. Reform and Orthodox Judaism increased in size to the expense of the Conservative movement. The United Jewish Communities coordinated 200 local Jewish federations in the U.S. and Canada, but a study in late 2004 showed disappointment with the organization.
