Jacobs-Goldwasser Book on Failed Jewish Leadership Now on Sale

Buy Betrayal today!

The American Jewish community is under assault and the Jewish establishment is failing to defend us.

That is the theme of our just-published book, Betrayal: The Failure of American Jewish Leadership, now available on Amazon.

The book sheds light on the importance of leadership and the crucial role which Jewish leadership must play to defend and protect American Jewry during a time of growing hostility.

Charles Jacobs, Avi Goldwasser, and a distinguished group of contributing authors — Alan Dershowitz, Mort Klein, Caroline Glick, Richard Landes, Jonathan Tobin, and Thane Rosenbaum among them — skillfully analyze the ideological onslaughts and physical threats that have become all too common. The authors delve into the pervasive presence of anti-Semitism in numerous spheres of American society, from news media to educational institutions, religious organizations, and, more recently, from political leaders.

This insightful 22-essay collection persuasively demonstrates that American Jewish establishment leadership today consists mostly of politicized bureaucrats operating on the basis of feel-good utopian notions disconnected from the real world. Betrayal loudly rings the alarm for a somnolent American Jewry. The Jewish community can ill afford to ignore the alarm.

The book will launch in Jerusalem this Sunday at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center with a panel discussion featuring Charles Jacobs, Richard Landes, and Melanie Phillips.

If you have friends in the Jerusalem area, please tell them about the event, which is free and open to the public. A video of the event will be posted on line in the coming days.

This book is unique and long overdue. It is a thought-provoking work which analyzes and documents the failure of American Jewish leadership to effectively confront the ideological and physical onslaught that many in the Jewish community are experiencing. The contributing writers describe and explain the failure of Jewish leaders to stop the ongoing demonization and defamation of Jews and Israel in the media, on college campuses, in high schools, and even Congress.

The Jewish Leadership Project, which compiled and edited the essays, is planning several webinars with the authors over the next few months. Stay tuned.

The book, which retails for $18.99, can be purchased here.
