The American Foundations

The American Foundations

(p.93) Chapter Five The American Foundations

Mira Katzburg-Yungman

Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses Hadassah's American foundations. American zionist ideology had much in common with core American values and the American ethos. Hadassah's ideology is no exception to this rule, echoing American national ideals and characteristics fundamental to American culture. In the absence of a national common denominator, such as country of origin or heritage, the American national consciousness was largely formed on the basis of ideological identification with and commitment to a set of universal values. An individual's American identity is based on a system of ideas that has penetrated the daily life of American society and constitutes a living faith for most Americans.

Keywords:   American zionist ideology, American values, American ethos, American national ideals, American culture, American national consciousness, universal values, American identity
