Changing Student Attitudes Toward Israel

By Samuel Z. Fishman

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life, 1974

The author describes students' changing attitudes toward Israel, arguing that these attitudes have been influenced by many factors: military disengagement in the Middle East, the ban on travel to the Middle East, student encounters in Israel, changes in the United States, and the emergence of anti-Israel propaganda. The author urges that we need find ways- both on campus and in Israel- to offer American students a way to relate the phenomenon of the Jewish state to the depth and total range of the Jewish experience.
