American Jewish youth's attachment to Israel: implications for Israeli tourism
by Stephen W. Litvin; Jill Alison Schancupp
International Journal of Business and Globalisation (IJBG), Vol. 17, No. 2, 2016


Abstract: This paper explores an intersection of politics and tourism. The issue explored is the potential tourism effect of what some see as a changing attitude among American Jewish youth towards Israel. The authors have suggested that the current generation of American Jewish youth is losing its sense of attachment to Israel, with a disconnect between their innate liberalism and Israel's conservative politics. If a lessening of attachment is in fact occurring, what is the impact upon youth travel to Israel? This empirical study, built upon a foundation of previous research in the area of diaspora travel, reflects the relationship between attachment and travel variables, with results that should be of concern to the Israeli tourism industry.
