Zionism and Jewishness of Israelis

By Shlomit Levy, Louis Guttman

World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1976

The authors of this article ask to what extent Israelis feel part of the Jewish people in the world and to what degree do they view themselves as "Zionist". An Israeli may realize that he is Jewish, but not necessarily feel that he is part of a people spread throughout the world. He knows he is living in the Promised Land, but this may not necessarily imply "Zionism" for him. The data to be reported on here show that most Israelis do indeed feel that they are part of the Jewish people, while a high (but lesser) proportion also consider themselves "Zionist".
