Jewish Americans, like most diaspora Jews, feel deeply connected and committed to Israel, our one and only Jewish State.
From American pilots helped in the War of Independence in 1948 to lone soldiers who continue to join their brethren in Israel and serve in the Israeli Defense Forces.
They are young. They are old. Immigrants to America as well as families who have called America home for generations. What do they all have in common? All were American Jews and all dedicated time and energy to ensuring Israel Forever!
Join us as we join our American Jewish community in honoring American Jewish Heritage Month (AJHM), a month dedicated to highlighting the achievements of Jewish Americans.
Two Views: One Connection
American Jewry and the Israel dilemma
The Case for Israel in the Life of American Jewry
By Rabbi David Wolpe
Those of us who live in the diaspora have an obligation to defend Israel in whatever way we can. It is the 'tax' for not living there, so to speak. For every Jew who take her or his tradition seriously, Israel remains close to our hearts, and whatever our political leanings, we owe it our fidelity and frequent presence and our love.
Israel Makes American Jews Crazy
By Kenneth Cohen
Why do moderate, thoughtful, liberal minded people - who usually support all the "right" political and social causes get so emotional when it comes to Israel?
Help us bring Israel into the hearts and lives of Jews today, tomorrow, and FOREVER!
