New Daniel Gordis
Grappling with Israel's Evolving Identity
"Part of the challenge for all of us," says Daniel Gordis, "is to become less wedded to our own positions than to an open engagement with a changing reality," says Israel analyst Daniel Gordis in the latest Defining Zionism session. In conversation with Anti-Defamation League National Director Jonathan Greenblatt, Gordis discusses writers and the soul of the Jewish state, a quintessential Israeli experience in a Hadassah operating room, competing narratives of Jews as survivors and pioneers, Palestinian self-determination, his new book, "Israel: A Concise History of a Nation Reborn," and more.
