News on the Growing Disconnect Between Jews

“The tropes of ‘Jewish antisemitism’” (Guardian.co.uk)

According to Antony Lerman, “The concept of the ‘self-hating Jew’ has been dignified with a pseudo-psychopathology by those keen to suppress dissent.”

“Will the ultra-Orthodox hold Israel back?” (LA Times)

According to Stanley Gold, “Government subsidies, lower education expectations and political policies biased in favor of a religious minority impede the Jewish nation’s future.” He adds: “Privileging a small minority with state funding and granting them disproportionate influence over rituals related to marriage, conversion and other aspects of daily life run completely counter to principles embodied in Israel’s Declaration of Independence, which says that “the state of Israel … will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.””
