Israel and Australian Jewry - an unequal partnership?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Shahar will introduce his new book, Appeals, Aliyah and the Construction of a pro-Israeli Diasporic Identity (Hebrew, 2013), and examine the traditional political goals of Israel in the diaspora - including Aliyah, donation (financial aid), help in PR (Hasbara) and political pressure on host countries. Despite the demands, the diaspora is denied, by officials and policies, any significant influence in Israel. In the session we will examine the nature of the relationship with Australian Jewry, the anticipated political goals and the Israeli narratives to the diaspora.
