        In the process, he gives us an unforgettable taste of what he calls ‘the agonizing complexity of Israel’s dilemmas’. video review NY1. As a work of political, cultural, and religious history, Like Dreamers is a triumph. Jewish Voice. Brilliant. It would make a terrific movie, or even a new book in the Bible Jewish Week/5(4). The Prophetic Vision of Zionism's Jewish Critics By Allan C. Brownfeld From the earliest days of Zionism, the philosophy which proclaimed that Jews were a distinct nationality, not a religious community, and should return to their ancient "homeland" in Palestine represented a minority view among Jews.

      By analyzing Israelis' perspectives on a number of divisive issues including Jewish state symbols, marriage law, public Sabbath observance and funding for religious education Mazie identifies a rift between Israeli and American understandings of "separation of religion and state" and a gulf between Jewish and Arab citizens' visions for Israel's. The problem with that question is not really that it draws upon stereotypical perceptions of American Jewish life (though it certainly does that): it is also based on a stereotypical and self-defeating premise that lessons about Jewish life in Israel are to be learned and shared exclusively among Israelis.

      To always continue learning and growing is an essential Jewish value. The Judaica Webstore carries a large selection of books and software about every aspect of Jewish existence, from beautiful editions of sacred texts, to scholarly commentary, to books on the history of the Holy Land, to volumes dealing with contemporary Israel and the Jewish-Arab conflict. Like Dreamers is not a definitive history of the Six Day War, of Israel, or the Arab-Israeli conflicts, but instead is a deeply personal exploration of the lives of individuals connected by this history. It is a wonderful book, worth reading by anyone interested in Israel and connected topics/5.

American Jews stand with Israel. At times of war and crisis, that’s the way it has always been, and this time is no different. Despite gruesome pictures of civilian casualties in Gaza, media coverage that is frequently critical of the Jewish State, and shrill and accusatory statements about Israel from UN officials and foreign diplomats, American Jewish support has been unwavering.

American-Jewish literature, in English, began most inauspiciously with the verse of Emma Lazarus, whose intentions were noble, but who rarely rose even to the level of the English Romantic poet, Mrs.

Felicia He-mans (whose much-mourned early loss, popularity, and general badness might inspire us to term her the Sylvia Plath of her age). If it’s truth you seek, look no further than Victor Thorn’s latest book on the subject, Made in Israel: and the Jewish Plot Against America.

What this book makes clear, and what many “truthers” don’t know, is that a massive deception and cover-up exists not only in the mainstream media, but in the so-called truth movement as well.

In Israel's Higher Law, Steven V. Mazie draws on the voices of Israeli citizens to shed new light on the relationship between liberal democracy and religion.
