On Remaining in America: Ge-ulah Bagolah

By Richard Levy

Response, Winter 1972

The author argues against that the Zionist claim that the only place a Jew can fully realize his Jewishness, and be fully liberated, is within the Land of Israel. He proposes a two fold-argument: that it is possible to be a fully participatory Jew in America, and that Jews have a moral obligation to remain in America and try to bring social justice to this nation.
