What 'Supporting Israel' Means

By Roberta P. Seid

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, April 2010

Seid writes about American Jewry's questioning of what it means to be supportive of Israel. The debate stems partially from a disagreement of how Israel should respond to its challenges, but it is fueled by an aggressive propaganda campaign that distorts human rights language and reality. American Jews must support Israel's right to exist and to defend itself and understand that supporting Israel does not conflict with supporting social justice values.
