This chapter presents books which consider the importance of Zionism, Israel, and the Middle East in Jewish history. The first book examined traces the migration of Bialystok Jews to five different cities on four continents. Topics covered by other books reviewed here include the role of tourism in Jewish history and the semiotic stance of tourism, the communal experience, dissenting streams of Zionist thought, issues related to birthright in Israel, and the role of the novel in restoring Jewish self-confidence and in extending post-Holocaust Jewish identity well beyond Israel or the U.S. The final book considered here provides a testimony of a young woman who was shocked to learn that the political and legal status of her settlement was different from that of other places in Israel.

Keywords:   Bialystock Jews, tourism, communal experience, birthright, political Zionism, Israel
