Envisioning Israel: The Changing Ideals and Images of North American Jews

Allon Gal (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


While the history of Zionism in the US has been the subject of numerous works, American ideological attitudes toward the State of Israel have been less frequently treated in the scholarly literature. This book fills that gap. An international conference convened in the Negev brought together academic authorities for three full days of candid interaction and bold analyses of American Zionist ideology. This volume distills the results of that conference, illuminating the images and expectations of American Jews toward Israel, especially their liberal hopes. Readers interested in the status and fate of the Jewish state will find this collection of essays thought-provoking and instructive.
