Israel is rapidly losing its hold on young American Jews, who increasingly view the Jewish state as antithetical to their liberal values, a leader of the Jewish Agency warned on Monday.
[...] Hoffman [...] cited a recent study conducted by the Brand Israel Group that showed that support for Israel among Jewish college students in the United States had dropped 32 percent between 2010 and 2016 [....]
The growing rift between Israel and American Jewry in general, according to Hoffman, was “like nothing we have ever seen before.”
Older American Jews are not as disengaged from Israel as their younger counterparts, he said, but they were deeply offended by recent actions of the government. “Among large sections of American Jewry, there is a real question today about how much Israel is home to them,” he said.
