Abstract:

In order to ascertain the attitudes of American Jews towards Israel, and their understanding of its current crises, the author conducted 150 interviews with Jews in over 20 communities across the USA. While not a scientific study, this monograph provides specific examples of how events in Israel have affected the lives of American Jews.
