Rabbi James RosenbergRabbi James RosenbergAri Shavit’s “My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel” is a bittersweet love letter addressed to all those who want to see Israel succeed as a democratic Jewish state.

The subtitle suggests why bitter (“Tragedy”) and why sweet (“Triumph”).

Shavit, born in Rehovot in 1956, is a respected columnist for Haaretz and a popular commentator on Israeli public television. He has taken well over 400 pages to offer an exhaustive account of the slow transformation of the Zionist dream into a richly complex but problematic reality. His book is wise, nuanced, and honest; the author is not afraid to focus upon the heartbreaking and deeply troubling moral compromises that have accompanied the creation of the State of Israel.

The German/English “Berlin & City Guide” (No. 6, 2013) contains an article entitled “Remembering the terror,” which begins with the following sentence: “Berlin’s theme year ‘Diversity Destroyed’ encompasses not only the Nazis’ rise to power in 1933 but also remembers the November pogroms of 1938, when all over Germany synagogues were burned and desecrated and the persecution of the Jews reached new heights.” The writer goes on to direct tourists to various locations in Berlin, which promote the memory of “the terror” – in particular, the persecution of the Jews.

The story of Joseph and his brothers is the longest continuous narrative in our entire Torah; its telling takes four consecutive readings of the parashat ha-shavuah, the weekly Shabbat Torah portion – this year extending from November 23 through December 14. The story begins with the first verse of Genesis, chapter 37, and concludes with chapter 50, verse 26, the final words of our first Biblical book, which inform us that Joseph died at the age of 110, was embalmed and placed in a coffin in Egypt.
