When US President Barack Obama visits Jerusalem in March, he is expected to urge Israel to refrain from taking precipitate military action against Iran’s nuclear weapons program. But with Iran’s recently announced plan to install 3,000 advanced high-speed centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear facility, the likelihood of unilateral Israeli action may actually be greater than ever.

Many of us who deal with Jewish public affairs in the US have been quietly considering this possibility. The obvious question is: If an Israeli attack were to occur, how should the American Jewish community respond? The issue is particularly complex given the severity of the Iranian nuclear threat, the risks and multiple potential outcomes of an Israeli strike, and what’s sure to be vocal opposition to Israeli military intervention among progressive Jews already disillusioned with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “hard-line” policies.
