Making Contact - Not My Zion: American Jews Divided on Israel and Palestine

The American consensus on Israel and Palestine is breaking down.  And Jewish Americans are playing a major role.  But it’s not easy.  On this edition: a Jewish American community divided.  More and more ‘members of the tribe’ are breaking a long-standing taboo, and voicing criticism of the Israel government.
