The Kotel Crisis and Oslo Memories

Posted on
Retired diplomat and MK Colette Avital with AJPA Director Aliza Becker on May 24, 2017
Underlying the recent reporting on the Israel-Diaspora crisis over the cancellation of an egalitarian prayer space at the Western Wall is the assumption that public disagreement between mainstream American Jewish leaders and the Israeli government is something extraordinary, and, according to some, traitorous. However, reading the news coverage of this issue, I was reminded of my recent interview with former diplomat and Member of Knesset Colette Avital, who spoke about the right-wing American Jewish community’s vocal opposition to the Israeli government during the 1990s. Read excerpts from her May 2017 AJPA interview in Tel Aviv, in which she recounted her experiences with the American Jewish community while serving as Israeli Consul General for New York from 1992 to 1996 here.
