By Yaakov Katz.. Tikkun olam is an important piece of our national story, but we should not forget the core of the Jewish people’s narrative – an ancient nation that returned to its historic homeland. Why do Jews live in Israel? What is their purpose here? Why not live somewhere else? Why in this specific contested small piece of land? I ask these questions as I complete my first year as editor of The Jerusalem Post, a job I started immediately after last Passover. I ask since over the last year I have had the opportunity to attend and speak at numerous Jewish conferences on multiple continents and what I have found is that everyone is struggling to give an answer, to create a narrative and to tell a story that will connect Jews – especially young ones – with the State of Israel. Read the full story.
