Israel and Reform Judaism: A Zionist Perspective

By Alfred Gottschalk

World Zionist Organization (WZO), 1979

The author of this article, President of Hebrew Union College, unfolds the historical progression of the Reform Movement’s relation to Israel and the Jewish State. He starts with the movement’s first universalistic denial of Israel as a territorial concept, but moves on to describe the ideological switch the movement has undergone, the development of the movement in Israel, and its effect on Israeli society and politics.
