The confluence of the ongoing violence in Israel and the September 11 terrorist attacks provides the opportunity for a new covenant in the relationship between American Jewry and Israel. This covenant is based on a shared sense of deep caring and unity. In the past year, the American Jewish community has been galvanized, as federations have provided the opportunity for people to come together and express their sense of concern and connection with Israel.
