'DO you have a pioneering spirit?" read the recent ad in the Jewish Week newspaper of New York. "Are you searching for a meaningful community where YOU can make a difference?" To generations of American Jews, the pitch had a familiar ring. But this was not an invitation to settle the Promised Land.
