Professor Dollinger Discusses Annexation's Effect on American Jews

Thursday, June 25, 2020

WASHINGTON JEWISH WEEK -- It remains unclear exactly how broad the July announcement will be, or when annexation would officially take effect. Regardless, the announcement is likely to have major symbolic influence on American Jews.

“I think the impact comes when the announcement is made because honestly American Jews are not on the ground in Israel to understand the day-to-day situation,” said Marc Dollinger, a Jewish Studies professor at San Francisco State University.

Dollinger said annexation may mark a new low point in the relationship between American Jews and Israel.
