The Magnes Zionist

My Israeli/American friend of a friend Jerry Haber (a nom de plume) is now writing a blog called, "The Magnes Zionist," which is worthy of your attention. The blog attempts to get Jews to rethink some of their assumptions about Israel, Zionism, and the Palestinians, but in a non-threatening way. Jerry is a liberal orthodox Jew who teaches Jewish studies at a university. Comments are welcome.
