This inspirational book features the insights of over 100 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.
Praise for A Dream of Zion: American Jews Reflect on Why Israel Matters to Them
“Offers a multitude of views ... gives both Jews and Christians a remarkable insight into this important subject.”
American Library Association’s Booklist
“A useful tool for those seeking to define their own relationship with Israel.”
Jewish Book World
“Bravo to Rabbi Salkin for gathering these impressive personal testimonies. They serve an urgent and vital purpose—reminding us of the nearly four-thousand-year bond between the Jewish People and Israel, and educating us on Israel’s enduring meaning for American Jewry.”
David A. Harris, executive director, American Jewish Committee
“A touching, emotional, funny book.… Every essay touches a nerve in every American Jew who loves Israel. I highly recommend this book as a personal joy to read and to give as a gift to those who ask, ‘Why should I care about Israel?’”
June Walker, chairperson, Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations
“Rabbi Salkin and Jewish Lights did it again! Thank you for this inspiring gift for Israel’s 60th! A must for lovers and dreamers of Zion around the world … and a great resource for anyone who explores a contemporary engagement with Israel.”
Rabbi Uri Regev, president, World Union for Progressive Judaism
“In this compelling volume one hears the multiplicity of views and emotions American Jews have for Israel. It demonstrates that there is no single American Jewish perspective of Israel. At this time when there are so many misconceptions about American Jewish attitudes toward Israel this book will serve an important purpose.”
Deborah E. Lipstadt, PhD, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and
Holocaust Studies, Emory University
