In Trouble in the Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict Over Israel (Princeton University Press, 2016), Dov Waxman, professor of political science, international affairs, and Israel studies at Northeastern University, explores how Israel has become a source of tension within the American Jewish community. Drawing on dozens of interviews with American Jewish leaders, Waxman shows traces the ways that Israel used to unite American Jews, but increasingly seems to divide them.
