THE ZIONIST IDEA: AN INTELLECTUAL HISTORY

With Rabbi Niles Goldstein

IN-PERSON and On YouTube, Register to Get Book Assignments

Israel has been in the news a great deal in recent months and there has been a lot of discussion and (at times heated) debate about the Jewish State and the Zionist foundations from which it was born. Join Rabbi Niles Goldstein for a text-based exploration of this important subject. What exactly is Zionism? When did it emerge as an intellectual, religious and political movement? Are there different types of Zionism? No prior knowledge of the topic is required.
