Stopping Them From 'Tuning Out Israel'

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2012

How to address those increasing numbers of young American Jews who simply tune out Israel? Accusations of betrayal are useless. A more nuanced presentation of Israel, one that bears at least some correspondence to the complexity of the place is a start. The availability of a credible liberal Zionism, rooted in the humane tradition that used to characterize the Zionist mainstream, that stands in opposition to the distorted Zionist pretensions of Israel's extreme right-wing, may bring young Jews back to Zionism.
