Israel as the Vision and Venture of the Jewish People: The Manifest
The enduring understanding of the following narrative is that the State of Israel was envisioned and built by the Jewish People.
Today, however, most young Jews, both in Israel and throughout the Jewish world, view Israel as the “State of the Israelis” and have difficulty grasping the notion of the “State of the Jewish People” altogether. Despite this reality, our belief is that Israel is still conceptually and essentially the State of the Jewish People and can regain that status in the hearts and mind of young Jews if it will return to be the vision and venture of the People.
Our main purpose in offering a current reinterpretation of the narrative of the State of Israel as “the vision and venture of the Jewish people” is to frame the conversation about the future of Israel from a Peoplehood perspective.
