America's Roundtable

A Conversation with Gol Kalev | Judaism 3.0: Judaism's Transformation to Zionism

October 28th, 2022

Join America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Gol Kalev, author of "Judaism 3.0: Judaism's Transformation to Zionism."

Gol Kalev writes about Zionism, Europe and global affairs, analyzing long-term shifts and applying historical perspectives. He was an investment banker on Wall Street for nearly two decades, specializing in Mergers & Acquisitions and Capital Raising, advising financial institutions in both the United States and in Europe. He is chairman of the America-Israel Friendship League Think Tank which explores issues relating to Zionism and Judaism, and he is the author of the think tank's position papers. His articles are featured on

The Book: Judaism 3.0: Judaism's Transformation to Zionism

For over a decade, Gol Kalev has been arguing that Judaism is in the midst of a historic transformation, and Zionism is becoming its organizing principle.

He explores this idea in the AIFL Think Tank which he has been chairing since 2011, in position papers he authored, in featured articles he has written since 2015 in the Jerusalem Post and other publications, and since 2019, in his Jerusalem Post Column, Judaism 3.0.

The book unveils the transformation, places it in its historical context, and demonstrates how it is already evident – both in the manner Jews relate to Judaism, and in the way the outside world perceives the Jews.

The book has already generated robust discussion and anticipation, even before published. A preview was published in a 2018 in a Jerusalem Report article and advanced copies been shared with a select group of thinkers. In January 2022, the Jerusalem Report chose the upcoming book as the cover of its 2022 New Year magazine.
