Attitudes of American Jewry Toward the Arab-Israeli Conflict

By Eytan Gilboa

Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), 1985

The author contends that since the establishment of Israel in 1948, American Jewry has functioned as an important link between Israel and the rest of American society. According to the author, the main purpose of the article was to ascertain, on the basis of reliable public opinion polls, whether American Jewry drifted away from Israel in the early 1980s. Despite the fact that events in the early 1980s were particularly difficult and challenging to American Jews and their relationship to Israel, he concludes that the partnership between American Jewry and Israel remained solid over this time.
