For Israel Independence Day, A New Vision For Building Society

05/09/2011
Special to the Jewish Week

It is once again that time of year; our three young children – along with many others - are sorting through the ever-growing collection of Israeli flags to adorn our home for Israel's Independence Day (May 10). Our children are proud young Jewish-Israelis, free to celebrate the Jewish People's modern triumph of democratic state-building.

Yet, even as we celebrate, as Israeli adults entrusted with our children's futures, we are obliged to take a closer look at Israeli society and act boldly for the well-being of future generations.
