If I Forget Thee, O Jerusalem: American Jews and the State of Israel

By Robert Silverberg | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book was written during a remarkably chaotic year of its author's life, when unusual circumstances forced him to rely in great measure on the assistance of others. This is not meant to excuse any flaws the book may have, only to emphasize the debt I have to the people listed here. Without their aid there most literally would not have been a book.

I am grateful, particularly, to my agent, Scott Meredith, for an infinity of services; to Lawrence Hughes and Hillel Black of William Morrow for their patience, forbearance, and encouragement; to my research associate, Stephen Crane, for his indispensable cooperation; and to Bill Adler for his suggestions and contributions. I must also thank my wife Barbara, not only for her help in the mechanical aspects of preparing the manuscript, but for putting up with the whole exhausting enterprise for so many months while her husband was submerged in the intricacies of Zionist history.

I am indebted to the hundreds of people both in the United States and in Israel who allowed me the opportunity to discuss with them their feelings about Israel, Zionism, Judaism, and related topics. In particular, I wish to thank the officers of several Jewish organizations who made themselves available for extended conversations. They include Jacques Torczyner, president, Zionist Organization of America; Dr. Simon Segal, director of the foreign affairs department, American Jewish Committee; Stuart Gottlieb, executive director, and Harold B. Attin, public relations director, of the American Council for Judaism; David Ariel, consul for political affairs, Israeli Consulate, New York City; Joseph El
