The Crisis of Zionism by Peter Beinart
Facilitated by Dr. Jeff Siker, Professor of New Testament & Christian Origins

In the United States, the refusal of major Jewish organizations to defend democracy in the Jewish state is alienating many young liberal Jews from Zionism itself. In the next generation, the liberal Zionist dream--the dream of a state that safeguards the Jewish people and cherishes democratic ideals--may die.
