Israel at 70: Looking Back and Looking Forward

Writing for The St. Louis Jewish Light, Andrew Rehfeld, the president and CEO of the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, reflects on the 70th anniversary of the state of Israel’s founding. He writes, “For the biggest threat that Israel faces from our community is not disagreement, but growing apathy and disengagement. We need to help an older generation recognize that Israel of 2018 is not Israel of 1948 (or 1967 or 1973); and to help a younger generation recognize the necessity of a Jewish State and the threats to its constituted existing that remain.”
