Someone I used to work with even told me that had to not talk about my identity, my race and my religion. These social pressures Jews face is real and serious.
And now many younger Jews are repeating the left's denunciation of Israel, and even policies that call for the destruction of the country, based largely on social pressures and acceptance.
I understand that desire to fit in and be accepted, but I don't feel I have that luxury when my safety is at stake.
And for the reasons above, I empathize with the author of this piece on why young Jews are denouncing "Zionism"- a term that has been (as of late) misunderstood and used as a slur for those of us who believe in Israel's right to exist.
I don't agree with everything the author says about young Jews, but I share her frustration with the ignorance that these younger folks are showing.
