About the event

Since the 1980s Evangelicals have been one of the most reliable sources of political support for Israel in the United States. This had a profound effect on American foreign policy and contributed to the deepening ties between the United States and Israel ever since. However, recent data suggests that younger Evangelicals today may not necessarily share in the “fervent embrace” of Israel that has characterized earlier generations. Are younger Evangelicals turning away from Israel– if so, why? Are they expressing growing sympathy for Palestinians? What is responsible for this generational divide? How has the recent war in Gaza impacted Evangelical views? And what does this all mean for the future of U.S.-Israel relations? This interdisciplinary panel of academic experts will tackle these timely questions and present new data and analysis on what appears to be a transformative moment in the “special relationship” between the United States and Israel.
