    While I believe that the author's point speaks to me as an individual, in my work as a reform rabbi in a small Jewish community, I see the worst fears of those who say that our relationship is growing more and more distant coming true. Will this election cause a cataclysmic shift in American Jewry and its relationship to the Jewish state? No. But it is 'one more brick in the wall', 'one more straw on the camel's back', etc... American Jews see an Israel whose values are more and more out of step with our own (not to mention an Israel whose religiousity is both foreign to our own, and denigrates American Jewry through policy and through discourse). American Jewry won't disengage overnight with Israel--it will continue to happen quietly--and I'm afraid we won't take meaningful action until it is too late.
