Why Are Jews Liberals?

Posted on January 9 2010 1:00 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

I’m late to the party when it comes to Norman Podhoretz’s masterful book Why Are Jews Liberals? Literally. I couldn’t make it to New York for the party when the book came out.

By a happy coincidence, I was able to hear Norman speak about the book at an Orthodox synagogue near my neighborhood earlier this week.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has ever asked the question posed by the title. I suspect that this includes everyone who will read this post. Indeed, Norman says that it is by far the most common question he is asked…
