Learning from our Failures

By Daniel J. Elazar

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), April 1989

In the wake of the 1987 intifada (Palestinian uprising), the author considers failures from which, he argues, Israel and the Jewish community must learn. These failures are a result of grappling with the challenges that come with temporal power, and parallel the project taken up by the original Sadducean Jews. A thriving Jewish state requires that 'Neo-Sadducean' Judaism find positive expression, and in order to do so it must learn from these failures.
