letter to J Weekly in response to "Peter Beinart waves the Zionist flag in JCCSF talk" (April 20)

Thank you to J Weekly editor Sue Fishkoff for a textured description of Peter Beinart's Zionism ("Peter Beinart waves the Zionist flag in JCCSF talk", April 20). There is more than one way to love Israel, and Beinart has staked an important distinction between his liberal Zionism and the anti-Israel efforts we all-too-often confront in the Bay Area. Thanks to his precision and passion, and thanks to high-quality reporting from Fishkoff, our conversation has grown in richness, and we have gained an important model for what just might be the most important conversation happening today for the sake of the Jewish People.
