THE GROWING DIVISIONS WITHIN THE AMERICAN JEWISH COMMUNITY
These days, it can feel like the Jewish community has never been so divided. The American Jewish community seems to be drifting away from our Israeli brothers and sisters, to say nothing of the divisions within our community. Are we hopelessly divided? Is the US Jewish community - and the US more generally - abandoning Israel? Or is something deeper going on?
