When he started writing Catch-67: The Left, The Right and the Legacy of the Six-Day War, Micah Goodman wanted to articulate the best argument possible for each side. That way, when the other side read the book, they might pause and say, “Oh, here is something I hadn’t thought about,” said Goodman in a recent interview. He wanted to help the conversation grow and help Israelis on both sides find common ground with the others’ views. This is the essence of this exciting new book, which seeks to bridge the gap of 50 years of argument in Israeli politics over what should be done next in the peace process.

“I’m a student of ideas, not politics,” Goodman said. His book first found success and praise across the political spectrum in Hebrew, and has now been translated into English by Eylon Levy. He wanted to reintroduce the public to great thinkers of Zionist history, from Berl Katznelson to Rav Abraham Isaac Kook.
