All in the Family: American Jewish Attachments to Israel

By Chaim I. Waxman

Oxford University Press, 1992

In Studies in Contemporary Jewry 8, 134-149. This article examines American Jewish support for Israel on the institutional, individual, and denomination levels. A second focus is the issue of whether this support has undergone any significant change since the late 1970s, and whether it is likely to erode in the near or long-term future. As will be discussed, the nature of the American Jewish attachment to Israel is, in large measure, a consequence of the group self-definition of American Jews as well as of their status in U.S. society.
