Storrs Campus
Konover Auditorium, Dodd Research Center

On March 9 at 7:00 pm, in the Konover Auditorium at the Dodd Research Center, Dov Waxman, professor of political science, international affairs, and Israel studies at Northeastern University will present “Trouble in the Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict over Israel.” Professor Waxman will describe how the conflict over Israel within the American Jewish communities has developed and what it means for the future of American Jewish politics. The event, sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life, UConn's Middle East Studies Program, and the Department of Political Science, is free and open to the public.

Professor Waxman's presentation will be followed by a Q&A as well as a book signing of Trouble in the Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict over Israel

From the back cover: Drawing on a wealth of in-depth interviews with American Jewish leaders and activists, Waxman shows why Israel has become such a divisive issue among American Jews. He delves into the American Jewish debate about Israel, examining the impact that the conflict over Israel is having on Jewish communities, national Jewish organizations, and on the pro-Israel lobby. Waxman sets this conflict in the context of broader cultural, political, institutional, and demographic changes happening in the American Jewish community.
