Reform Judaism Grapples with Zionism

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), December 1995

The Journal of Reform Zionism, put out by Arza, Reform Judaism's political faction in the World Zionist Organization, conveys a genuine effort to begin re-evaluating Reform Judaism in light of the sovereign Jewish nation-state in Israel. AVAR ve'ATID presents several aspects of this self-evaluation, so that other groups may learn from this worthy precedent. The articles discussed in this piece relate to the face of Reform Judaism today, its definition of religion and its relation to the concept of Jewish nationalism, Zionism and the State of Israel.
