Implications of the New Developments in Palestine for Jewish Culture
This paper focuses on the role of Palestine in relation to Jewish culture. The author asserts that the reconstituted Jewish Homeland--both in the State of Israel and in international Jerusalem--will have a three-fold effect on Jewish cultural development in America. It should help Jews clarify the character of their culture, help change their attitude toward it and enhance their own cultural creativity. It is also possible, if done wisely, to use Palestine to teach Jewish youth the importance of participation in and service to Judaism. The paper concludes by stating that efforts made to make the Jewish homeland an ideal society will help contribute toward bringing American Jewish society closer to where they want to be.
