The relationship among the United States, Israel, and the American Jewish community forms a fateful triangle. After 1948, official indifference and even hostility to the Jewish state lasted decades, while American Jews saw the small and isolated new country as an object of charity. After the 1967 and 1973 wars and during the decades of “peace processing,” America began to see Israel as an ally, American Jewish support grew, and official aid flows reflected a broad bipartisan consensus.

But today, all of those old patterns are disappearing. Join Elliott Abrams—veteran diplomat and Tikvah’s incoming chairman—as he analyzes the three legs of the fateful triangle: the relationships now emerging among American Jews, Israel, and the United States.
