Applying Judaism 3.0

In a series of Jerusalem Post articles, Gol Kalev shows how Israel-bashing has become today’s existential threat to Judaism.

It has both a populous retail component: Occupationalsim, and institutional destruction mechanisms that deploy modern day blood libels. Moreover, Israel’s friends in positions of power are influenced by the popularity of Israel-bashing.

In such dogmatic circumstances, Hasbara (Israeli PR) is ineffective.  Yet a broad global recognition that Judaism has transformed to Judaism 3.0, and Zionism is now its anchor, would dramatically mitigate the existential threat. 

Applying Herzl’s frameworks, such recognition could turn threats to Judaism into enablers of its survivability, and could pave the path to peace
