The Vertical Alliance Today

By Samuel Moyn

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2011

The author argues that the failure to create a vertical alliance with the U.N. does not imply that the U.N. is useless for Jews, either historically or today in broader human affairs. We should also recognize that the vertical alliance Jews have long sought in politics still largely culminates in their nation-states, like the State of Israel the U.N. helped recognize in the same year it proclaimed "human rights.
