Are Reform Jews Abandoning Israel?

By Steven M. Cohen

Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), Spring 1988

There is considerable evidence that much of the Reform public of the United States does not share the passionate involvement with Israel that has come to characterize the Reform movement as an institution. In order to enhance and broaden Israel involvement among the wider Reform Jewish public in the United States, the author suggests that Reform leaders seek to strengthen and identify Reform Jews with parts of Israeli society that they find most attractive, rather than attempting to "sell" the complete Israel, as many Jewish educators do.
