Jewish Millennials and Israel: What Makes Young American Jews Zionist or Anti-Zionist
 
In his new book The New Zionists: Young American Jews, Jewish National Identity, and Israel (2020), David Graizbord shows how American Jewish Millennials who are not orthodox approach Israel and Zionism. For them, these serve as solutions to the thinning of American Jewish identity, as they (re)root themselves through “Israeliness”—a largely secular expression of national kinship and solidarity, as well as of personal and communal purpose. This is something galvanizing that American Judaism scarcely provides.
 
Dr. David Graizbord is Associate Professor of Judaic Studies at the University of Arizona. A historian of early modern and modern Jews, his latest book is The New Zionists: Young American Jews, Jewish National Identity, and Israel. He serves as Program Leader for the University of Arizona Summer Study Abroad Program, Arizona in Israel.
