Are Israeli Jews distancing themselves away from American Jews? Does Non English Israeli Jews Have less in common among English Speaking Israelis & American Jews in General. Is the fact that the Conservative and Reform elements of the Israeli population being treated second-rate by the Chief Rabbis bearing its toll?
The American Jewish public seems to have found common ground in Politicians such as Netanyahu who was educated partly abroad in The US. rather than the strictly Hebrew Speaking Israelis. The non English speaking Israeli Generals and Politians come across a sort of alienated from American Jews.. All this could have been avoided had Israel Adopted Yiddish as their national language rather than Hebrew.
Is this eroding support or at best a nominal lack luster Support for Israel by American Jews?
Is this why American Jewish Lawmakers are voting contrary to Jewish and Israeli interests. In addition The Haredi and their small minor Political party “United Torah Israel” are bending the major parties over the desk to get everything on their wish list. What the two major Israeli political parties have to do is shun them as they do the Arab Israeli parties when forming a government. Whether the Israeli population realizes it the American Jewish Community is directly responsible for the most generous foreign aid package that Israel receives and keeps its that way voting Pro Israel Politicians..Thou the American Jewish Community doesn’t put it life on the line by serving in the IDF it plays a vital role in the safeguarding of Isreal..Do not alienate American Jews.
