Congratulations.

As you complete your high school studies, many of you are looking forward to college at a unique moment in Jewish and American history, a time of great opportunity as well as deeply disturbing trends on campus, and elsewhere.

Many books about soldiers in wartime are colorful, gung-ho accounts filled with blood-and-guts drama.

“Netanyahu isn’t Left or Right. He has no ideology. He is the ultimate Mr. Zigzag. He may be the world champion of zigzaggers.” — Avigdor Lieberman at a Yisrael Beiteinu faction meeting.

The “vicious, well-funded and sophisticated” BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement, which has “strong anti-Semitic elements,” is a serious problem on college campuses, Israeli columnist and author Ari Shavit told a group of local high school  students at a JCC Manhattan program on Sunday afternoon. But it is relatively small and could be defeated by a “much larger, stronger Jewish community.” It would require a more sophisticated strategy, Shavit said, one that would have Jewish students asserting themselves as “a moral minority,” and forming alliances with a wide range of campus activist groups that now target Jews “as part of the white, privileged aristocracy.”

The growing drift between American Jews and Israel is not a result of Jerusalem’s right-wing political policies, as many believe. Rather, it’s because American Jews are, well, less Jewish.
