We are living in a Jewish golden age—shaped by the blessings of American freedom and the miracle of Jewish sovereignty. Yet the Jewish people also face remarkable challenges: virulent forms of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism around the world, the diminishing of Jewish identity at home, and “progressive” ideas that weaken Jewish civilization everywhere. The time is now for a new Jewish political vision that brings together the riches of Jewish tradition and the wisdom of conservative ideas, and a new political movement that speaks up for the Jews in a proud conservative voice.
