Two weeks ago, I started a new job as the New York Regional Director for the World Zionist Organization's Department of Diaspora Activities. Three weeks ago, I was terrified. As a liberal thinker, a secular Jew, and a waffling Israel-lover, my connection to Zionism is constantly in flux. The job description entails designing and leading Zionist education seminars for campuses in the New York area, and I was not sure that I could put my personal doubts about Israel aside in order to best educate students. Defending Israel is exhausting, and I’m not sure I’m up for the challenge.
