In October 2002, Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky was delivered to his parents Ari and Naomi in Shaare Zedek Medical Center, located in a part of Jerusalem squarely inside the Green Line.
Menachem’s parents had recently made aliya from America in the midst of the second intifada, with suicide bombers blowing themselves up on buses and in cafes throughout the capital. They hoped that their only child born in Israel, the Jewish state, would have that fact reflected proudly on his US passport.
This fall, Menachem will celebrate his bar mitzva, but his US passport will continue to state his place of birth solely as “Jerusalem.” No mention can be made of Israel…
