The authors report results from a study designed to address three questions: (1) How broad-based is alienation from Israel among young American Jews? (2) Can the gap in support for Israel between younger and older American Jews be explained as a (temporary) life-cycle phenomenon? (3) Are the age-related variations related, as many believe, to political (i.e., left-of-center) orientations? Or are other factors more critical? The authors find that these trends are related more to age-cohort (year of birth) than to stage of life. But the authors find no evidence to suggest that political affiliation is related to alienation from Israel among young American Jews.
