"Trouble in The Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict over Israel", a talk by Dov Waxman, Monday, February 15, 2016. Time and location TBA.
Waxman will discuss his new book, Trouble in The Tribe, which declares that a major transformation is currently taking place in the American Jewish relationship with Israel. The age of unquestioning and uncritical American Jewish support for Israel has been succeeded by a new era of American Jewish conflict over Israel. Waxman describes the factors that have replaced solidarity with discord and the consequences of the split within the American Jewish community.

Dov Waxman is Professor of Political Science, International Affairs, and Israel Studies at Northeastern University, and the Stotsky Professor of Jewish Historical and Cultural Studies. He is also the co-director of the Middle East Center at Northeastern University. An expert on Israel, his research focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israeli foreign policy, U.S.-Israel relations, and American Jewry’s relationship with Israel.
