Why I believe in Israel's future: a father's story

When I was our kids' age, more or less, my then-girlfriend-now-wife and I left one life we were destined to live in America, and took on a different life in Israel. There were years when I wondered if I had done wrong by my kids, bringing them up in a place of conflict, uncertainty, division and all the rest. Attitudes towards Israel around the world grew more hostile, and I despaired. Lately, though, I have lost my talent for worrying about Israel. Though lots of people seem to think that Israel has declined over the decades, the opposite is true. I have seen Israel become a more decent society, more open-hearted and open-minded. In this session I will describe some of the many ways Israel has become more ‘menschlich’ through the years, and why I am confident that our future there will be better still.
