Portland Zionists Unite! and Other Stories

These raw, interlocking short stories-set in Israel, Portland, and Thailand-explore the complex reality of modern Israel, its recent history, and what it represents to its citizens and foreign-born Jews. With a range of different narrators-three Israel Defense Force soldiers, a hawkish retiree, a synagogue executive director, and a young video game fan-each story viscerally speaks to the contrasts between Israel's founding mythology and current political realities. Each narrator's perspective is different, but collectively the voices engage with a growing concern in US Jewish communal life: how to countenance an Israel that increasingly doesn't reflect the values of American Jews.
