Israel and the Jewish People: A New Contract for a New Century

about the talk

Since the creation of the State of Israel, the relationship between Israelis and Jews living abroad was based on the tacit agreement that Israeli's would build and defend Israel while Jews abroad would sustain it through financial support. With globalization transforming mass communication and Israel maintaining one of the strongest economies in the world, does this tacit agreement make sense today? How can Israel and the Jewish People build a stronger and more appropriate relationship for the next generation?
