Tracking Developments in the Progressive Field
Written by: Daphna Kaufman
This paper discusses two main themes evident in discourse through the period of November 22 – December 5 that significantly relate to the positioning of Jewish and pro-Israel communities in progressive arenas: the need for a definition to identify and counter strains of anti-Semitism that emanate from the progressive left; and the forms that progressive influence may assume in the Biden era.
This product summarizes developments that affect the positioning of Jewish and pro-Israel communities within the U.S. progressive left. Spanning a two-week period, November 22 – December 5, and relying solely on open-source information, the document covers events and highlights ‘weak signals’ with potential for developing significance.
This product is part of the ‘Grand Pivot of the Pro-Israel Network Project,’ for which the Reut Group received a grant the Genesis Prize as part of “Speak Out for Israel,” a global initiative in honor of 2019 Laureate Robert Kraft to combat anti-Semitism and efforts to delegitimize Israel, both of which are on the rise again in confluence with the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
