The New Zionists:
Young Americans Jews, Jewish National Identity, and Israel
David L. Graizbord

Through a qualitative analysis and broad historical contextualization of personal interviews, The New Zionists shows how American Jewish "Millenials" who are not religiously orthodox approach Israel and Zionism as galavanizing solutions to the thinning of American Jewish identity, and (re)root themselves through "Israeliness"- an unselfconscious and largely secular expression of national kinshp and solidarity, as well as of personal and communal purpose, that American Judaism scarcely provdies.

You can find and purchase the book through Rowman and Littlefield Publishing Company.  Click this link for more information:
