Antony Lerman’s The Making and Unmaking of a Zionist: A Personal and Political Journey movingly describes his gradual disenchantment but continuing thoughtful engagement with Israel and Zionism. Diana Pinto’s Israel Has Moved is a profound and unsettling account of a country that is no longer where we might think it is. As leading advocates of the revival and autonomy of European Jewish life, they discussed their contrasting experiences and conclusions about Israel’s trajectory.
