discover what Jewish people in America have to say about Israel —
Their voices have never mattered more than they do now.

AS ANTI-ISRAEL SENTIMENT spreads around the world — from Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to former President Jimmy Carter — it has never been more important for American Jews to share their feelings and thoughts about Israel, and foster a connection to Israel in the next generation of Jewish and Christian adults.

This inspirational book features the insights of top scholars, business leaders, professionals, politicians, authors, artists, and community and religious leaders covering the entire denominational spectrum of Jewish life in America today — and offers an exciting glimpse into the history of Zionism in America with statements from Jews who saw the movement come to life. Presenting a diversity of views, it will encourage people of all ages and backgrounds to think about what Israel means to them and, in particular, help young adults jump-start their own lasting, personal relationship with Israel.
