A review of the book, Apple of Gold: Constitutionalism in Israel and the United States by Gary Jeffrey Jacobsohn is presented. From its establishment in 1948, Israel has been an exceptional — that is to say — a different, state. Jacobsohn's insightful comparative study of constitutionalism in Israel and the United States is yet another demonstration. As he shows, Israel is a democratic polity that lacks a written constitution but nonetheless adheres to the norms of constitutionalism.
