The Hardest Adaptation: Life without Apocalypse

By Stephen Joel Trachtenberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1996

For many Diaspora Jews, the millenarian vision, which gives political struggles apocalyptic overtones, colors their view of Israel and the peace process. It is time to wean ourselves from the millenarian vision and to adopt a political one, one that is still risky and still encompasses acts of occasional terrorism but can accommodate a movement toward peace. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.72 no.3, Spring 1996.
