ABOUT US

The Israel Institute for Strategic Studies is an independent policy center devoted to the promotion of joint values shared by Israel and the United States of America as embodied in the following words of Justice Louis Brandeis:Let no American imagine that Zionism is inconsistent with Patriotism. Multiple loyalties are objectionable only if they are inconsistent. A man is a better citizen of the United States for being also a loyal citizen of his state, and of his city; or for being loyal to his college…. Every American Jew who aids in advancing the Jewish settlement …, [even] though he feels that neither he nor his descendants will ever live there, will likewise be a better man and a better American for doing so. There is no inconsistency between loyalty to America and loyalty to Jewry.

– April 25, 1915
