The Philosophers' Retreat: Exploring the Place of Israel in the lives of American Jews

By Esti Moskovitz-Kalman, Jonathan Boyd

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), Makom: Renewing Israel Engagement, 2003

MAKOM's origins are in a bold endeavor to grasp the contours of contemporary Jewish attachments to, and alienation from, Israel. The Philosophers' Retreat (2003) was an attempt to capture and make widely available an assessment of the state of the field of Israel engagement. This document has been used in schools, synagogues and in leadership training programs. Such thinking drives the work of the MAKOM network and it is refined continually in light of emerging developments. MAKOM is a partnership of Jewish communities and the Jewish Agency.
