Description - Sticking Together by Yaakov Kop
An Israeli and an American examine the major challenges confronting Israel within its own borders. These challenges - well known to Israelis but relatively little known elsewhere - have emerged in part out of the country's experience with large-scale immigration. Like the United States, Canada, and Australia, Israel has tried to melt different peoples into a cohesive nation. While its citizens have forged common bonds under circumstances of adversity - particularly constant threats from Palestinians and from neighboring Arab countries - the fabric of Israeli society is torn by four major schisms: between immigrants and native Israeli; between Jews and Arabs; between secular and religious Jews; and between Jews of different cultural and national backgrounds (such as Ashkenzim and Sephardim).
