Israel and America: Modern legacies of the ancient Hebrew Republic

Discussion: Culture in the Two Israels

Culture informs a society on how to navigate life and what our lives mean in a larger universe. Both the United States and Israel are homes to both one or more national cultures and to diverse subcultures. Culture reveals itself in religious belief and practice, the arts, language and communication, and all sorts of norms. How does American culture inform the identity of Americans? What does it mean to be “Israeli?” What do the two cultures share and what can they learn from one another? Reply with your comments below!
