Will the Real Daniel Gordis Please Stand Up?

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2011

Alienation from Israel is a problem, and rabbinical students are not immune. Daniel Gordis's theories about why this is â€" generational memory, the success of political Zionism, a universalism that has no room for Zionism - may or may not be correct. But the serious discourse is about whether Gordis is right in his lament for decency, liberalism and democracy in Israel, and what's to be done if he is.
