Negotiating Critical Analysis and Collective Belonging: Jewish American Students Write the History of Israel
American Jews, particularly those who are highly engaged in Jewish communal life, learn many stories about Israel’s past. They learn the story of Israel as the culmination of a heroic two thousand year struggle and about the waves of immigrants who came to the Holy Land with nothing and made the desert bloom.

This study analyzed 438 short narratives of the history of Israel written by Jewish American high school students attending Jewish day schools.
