Diaspora Need Not Apply

There is a fantastic oped in the NY Times from Alana Newhouse, the editor in chief of Tablet Magazine (which I really enjoy). There is a bill before the Israeli Knesset that may radically change Israel. That bill would give the ultra-orthodox power to say who is Jewish and who isn’t. This would destroy the connection between most Diaspora Jews (Jews living outside of Israel) and Israel. I wrote about the problem of Who is a Jew before when I visited Israel and the religious problem in Israel. I’ve also written about the Supreme Court case in Britain of determining who is Jewish. This is an issue that is very close to my heart and very important to me.

Here is the Oped: NY Times Oped
