Good Point! unfortunately today Israel is increasingly a place obsessed with religious and ethnic purity. It's not your father's Israel. It's a place that in many ways is the epitome of what many of us American Jews react very negatively too. It's very ironic but Israel in terms of values and attitudes is where things are much more similar to the Shtetl or Jewish "ghettos" of Poland, and America is where Jews are really free, dynamic, and creative. Just listen to the Israeli Chief Rabbi's. America is a breath of fresh air! God bless America!
