Portland Zionists Unite! And Other Stories

Author Eric Flamm

With a range of different narrators—three Israel Defense Force soldiers, a hawkish retiree, a synagogue executive director, and a young video game fan—each story viscerally speaks to the contrasts between Israel’s founding mythology and current political realities. From their different perspectives, the narrators collectively engage with a growing concern in US Jewish communal life: how to countenance an Israel that increasingly doesn’t reflect the values of American Jews. Portland Zionists Unite! is a sometimes harsh, yet ultimately hopeful book informed by Flamm’s personal experience.
