    A disturbing study conducted on behalf of the Israeli government confirms a marked rise in anti-Semitism across Europe, Israeli daily Walla reported on Sunday. According to the report, Jews throughout the continent are rapidly assimilating into non-Jewish society as a result of the intimation they increasingly feel, Walla said. While the number of crimes targeting Jews or Jewish institutions around the world did not increase over the last year, the survey highlighted several alarming statistics regarding the attitudes and fears […]

    JNS.org – Rather than feeling a sense of loss, leaving the second Passover seder behind in the U.S., or France, or Turkey, or any other country of origin is touted as a perk of living in Israel that new immigrants to the Jewish state (olim) mention in the same breath as the universal availability of fresh pita and falafel. But why do Diaspora Jews mutter to themselves while they’re dragging out the matzo balls for their return engagement at seder […]

  • 04/28/14--21:36: Peace Now or Never?
  • Respected Ha’aretz journalist Ari Shavit has made a startling confession: he was wrong about the prospects for peace with the Palestinians that he, like so many Israelis and diaspora Jews on the left, has vigorously advocated. Ever since Labor party politician Yossi Beilin revealed, for his private scrutiny, the peace plan to which Mahmoud Abbas had ostensibly agreed seventeen years ago, Shavit has been a true believer in peace now. As he recently wrote (April 24): “people as steadfast as […]

    In his new play Mr. Goldberg Goes to Tel Aviv, playwright Oren Safdie tackles an issue that is a cause of great concern to him: the relationship between Israelis and left-leaning Diaspora Jews with their “I know better” critical views. At the heart of the one-act play is Tony, a Jewish and gay Palestinian sympathizer who expresses strong anti-Israel sentiments when the play begins and at one point even sides with a Palestinian terrorist who holds him captive. Tony, who is […]

    JNS.org – Diaspora Jews increasingly doubt that Israel wants peace with the Palestinians and are growing more uneasy about discussing Israel in their local communities, a new wide-ranging study has found. According to a study by the Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) titled “Jewish Values and Israel’s Use of Force in Armed Conflict: Perspectives from World Jewry,”many Jews around the world “doubt that Israel truly wishes to reach a peace settlement with the Palestinians, and few believe it is making the […]

    This week’s announcement that Fiamma Nirenstein was being appointed Israeli ambassador to Italy ‎made waves on both sides of the Mediterranean.‎ Nobody is better suited than Nirenstein for this role — particularly in the wake of the signing of the ‎P5+1 agreement with Iran — due to her proven ability to create bipartisan support for Israel. Prime ‎Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ought to be lauded for recognizing this fact and acting on it. ‎ No wonder the Left is not pleased.‎ […]

    I spent the last days of 2015 meeting with British Jews in Birmingham. Along with many presenters from different countries and professional fields, I had been invited to participate in a Limmud conference, a multi-annual — and by now multi-continental — Jewish happening. The topics on my agenda were ostensibly varied: the viability of a two-state solution; flaws in the Israeli political system; Israel-US relations in the wake of the Iran deal; the cause and effect of the knife intifada; […]

    JNS.org – Fifteen Poles who have discovered their Jewish heritage arrived in Israel on Tuesday in time for the Purim holiday as part of a trip organized by Shavei Israel, an organization working to reconnect Diaspora Jews with Israel. Many young Poles who were raised as Christians have been discovering their Jewish roots in recent years. Their heritage was likely hidden due to their families trying to survive the Holocaust, or during the country’s former era of Communist rule. “Purim revolves around […]

    JNS.org – Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Yom HaShoah in Hebrew, challenges Israelis to acknowledge, remember, and respect the impact of such a dark time in Jewish and global history. Foreigners who find themselves on holiday in Israel during this day of observance are oftent taken aback at how an entire country is able to come to a standstill and complete silence, while sirens wail marking the date. The observance of Yom HaShoah doesn’t stop with the sirens. Educational programs, ceremonies, and […]

    The Jewish world, both in Israel and the Diaspora, is undergoing dramatic demographic and ideological changes. The past decades have witnessed a steep decline in the power and influence of Diaspora Jews. Israel’s centrality to Jewish life and the ties which link Jews in the Diaspora to Israel are facing considerable stress. Yet Israel has clearly emerged as the guarantor of the continuity of Jewish life. It has empowered the Jewish people. It has absorbed Jews from all corners of […]
