A New Role for Israel in American Jewish Identity

By Arnold Eisen, Jonathan S. Woocher, Allon Gal

Professor Eisen argues that attachment to the State of Israel has recently become more problematic for American Jews. He presents options for strengthening Israel's place in American Jewish identity, focusing on four factors: politics, religion, ethos/ethnicity, and ideology. Also included are a foreword by Steven Bayme and responses by Jonathan Woocher of the Jewish Education Service of North America (JESNA) and Allon Gal of the University of the Negev, Beersheba (Israel).

Topic: Political Behavior, Diaspora Relations, Israel-Diaspora Relations, Israel Attachment, Israel's Impact on American Jewry, Politics, Zionism
