While it is well established that American Jews have strong feelings in favor of Israel, the author contends that less attention is paid to the question of what the specific content of American Jews' Israel-related ideology is. The author analyzes the specific nature and roots of American Jews' feelings about Israel, and contrasts American Zionism to Israeli Zionism. He asserts that American Jews do not see Israel as central to Judaism the way Israelis do.
