A Parting of Ways?
Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, October 2010
Examining results from a study conducted by the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies, the author argues (contra Peter Beinart, who argued in June 2010 that young American Jews are becoming more estranged from Israel) that in fact, disengagement with Israel is not a generational trend, but rather a lifecycle phenomenon. That is to say, in past generations as well as the current generation, Jews become more engaged in Jewish life, and more attached to Israel, as they age, argues the author. Political beliefs, however, are beginning to separate American Jews from Israeli Jews, the author notes, and the children of intermarriage are also less likely to support Israel.
