Letters to an American Friend : A Zionist Polemic Paperback / softback

Edited by Hillel Halkin


This passionate polemic addresses itself to the ultimate questions of Jewish destiny and proclaims the primacy of Israel as the locus of the Jewish future.

Hillel Halkin is an American-born Jew who has cast his personal and historical lot with Israel.

Corresponding with an imaginary American Jewish friend who upholds the possibility of a viable Jewish life outside Israel, Halkin forcefully argues his case: Jewish history and Israeli history are two lines in the process of converging; and any Jew who chooses, in the absence of extenuating circumstances, not to live in Israel is removing himself to the peripheries of the struggle for Jewish survival and away from the center of Jewish destiny.
