American Jews and Israel: Are They Drifting Apart? A Symposium

By Alfred H. Moses, Arye Carmon, Mel Levine, Norman Podhoretz

American Jewish Committee (AJC), March 1990

This report documents a symposium held at the meeting of the American Jewish Committee's National Executive Council on November 4, 1989. It binds together four presentations on the relationship between American and Israeli Jews, all guided by the question: are American Jews and Israel drifting apart? The presentations raise issues central to the subjects: internal affairs of Israel, the ongoing peace process, the interrelationship of American and Israeli Jews, especially revolving the Law of Return and definitions of who is a Jew, along with issues within America, such as pro- or anti-Israel advocacy.

Topic: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Diaspora Relations, Israel-Diaspora Relations, Jewish Identification, Israel Attachment, Israel's Impact on American Jewry, Peace, Israel Advocacy, Hasbara
